These 8 Weird Places In Montana Are As Strange As It Gets
Montana may not seem like a strange place, but it definitely has its oddities and quirky attractions. And that’s exactly the way we like it. The places on this list are definitely weird, but they’re still fun to visit.
1. The Berkeley Pit, Butte
The fact that this former-open-copper-mine-turned-toxic-pit exists isn't even the weird part... the fact that we turned it into a tourist attraction is.
2. Montana Vortex & House of Mystery, Columbia Falls
Whether you believe the Montana Vortex is a quantum or gravitational anomaly or a hoax, you must admit it's a fun place to visit.
3. Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum
This museum promotes the ideas the dinosaurs existed at the same time as humans (and were on Noah's Ark) and that the world was created in six days about 6,000 years ago, just as the Bible states.
4. O’Fallon Historical Museum, Baker
The main attraction here is Steer Montana, the world’s largest steer, who weighed almost 4,000 pounds at one point.
5. The American Computer Museum, Bozeman
The American Computer Museum has been voted one of the top 10 free museums in the country. If you've ever wanted to see (practically) every computer ever made, check it out.
6. Jim’s Horn House, Three Forks
For the last 6 decades, Jim Phillips has collected thousands of antlers. He displays his collection of 16,000 antlers in a well-lit shed on his property.
7. Anaconda Smelter Stack
Our smelter stack stands tall and majestic, in the middle of its designated state park in Anaconda.
8. The Cut Bank Penguin
There is a giant talking penguin statue outside the Glacier Gateway Inn to remind us all that Cut Bank gets incredibly cold.
Montana has never shied away from its weirdness. In fact, we enjoy being
America’s black sheep.
