The Bigfork Museum of Art & History was founded in 1983 the roots of the organization trace back to 1977 when a group of forward-thinking individuals saw the need to foster the arts and established a community art center in the small village of Bigfork. The group purchased and renovated a gas station and proceeded to turn it into the Bigfork Art & Cultural Center which is now the Bigfork Museum of Art & History.
We are a non-profit organization bringing exhibitions, programs and educational opportunities for all ages. The Main Gallery is on a rotating schedule of Art and History featuring Montana artists and the historic Bigfork area.
The upper galleries are home to our historic exhibitions, featuring 100 years of Bigfork history in photographs and special exhibitions of Bigfork life, Flathead Lake and the flora and fauna of the area.
The Museum has a gift shop filled with Montana made products. This web site features some of those items. For current and previous exhibitions please scroll the menu bar to see our exciting variety of exhibitions.

The Bigfork Art & Cultural Center has become the Bigfork Museum of Art & History. After 30 years of being a premier Art Center the board of directors decided to get back to the roots of the organization and resurrect the Historical Museum that was once part of the Center. The Museum will retain its focus of showcasing the many talented artists of Montana as well as preserving the unique history of Bigfork and the surrounding area. With a new mission statement:
The Bigfork Museum of Art & History is dedicated to bringing an awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in Montana and the history of the Bigfork region. The museum seeks to inspire the visitor and community members through exhibitions, programs and collections in arts, sciences and the humanities. To offer these services and expand them as the needs and desires of the community dictate.
With this new focus the board and staff will be working with the community to expand our local history display as well as work with the natural history. The museum will also continue to bring quality art exhibitions to Bigfork from member shows to themed juried shows and highlighting the talented artists who have made Bigfork their home. The upper level of the Museum will be repurposed to house the new historical museum space. If you would like to help with this endeavor please contact us today!
