Description

The Montana Historical Society Museum, Montana's Museum, collects, preserves, and interprets fine art, historical, archaeological, and ethnological artifacts that pertain to Montana and its adjoining geographic region. Montana's Museum is where history and land come together in the story of the people who have called Montana home. Located near the State Capitol in Helena, the museum is an essential part of a meaningful travel experience in Montana.

The Museum collects, preserves, and interprets fine art, historical, archaeological, and ethnological artifacts that pertain to Montana and its adjoining geographic region. Besides caring for the Society's museum collections, program staff conduct research, produce exhibits - long-term exhibits, special exhibits, archived exhibits, and traveling exhibits, sponsor public programs, answer reference requests from the public, and provide technical assistance to other museums and historical societies. If you would like to obtain a photographic reproduction of artwork or artifacts from out collection, please email museumphotos@mt.gov . The Museum also preserves the Original Governor's Mansion as an historic house museum. The Museum's Education and Outreach Office offers guided tours, school services, conferences, workshops, classes, publications, hands-on activities, and other public events. The Museum also administers volunteer services within the Society and coordinates the Montana History Conference.

The many public activities of the Museum reach a large and diverse audience throughout the state and region. In 2001, over 75,972 people visited Montana's Museum and educational outreach programs served an additional 45,906 individuals.

The Montana Historical Society's Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums, the highest honor a museum can receive.
