Montana Historical Society Museum reviews
It was a very good experience for my wife and I. The layout of the building and the displays were very good and very thought out. It was very educational and we really did enjoy ourselves.

Smaller museum, but the displays are interesting and well thought out. It also has a beautiful art gallery in the back.

Our family loved this museum. Don't miss the military exhibit on the third floor which has some very unique items, or the white buffalo on the second floor.
what a great museum with tons of Montana history. The CM Russell artwork display is worth goin to see in itself! this is a must do while in Helena
