These 3 Montana Museums Are So Fascinating It’s Hard To Believe Admission Is Free

Montana spans 147,040 square feet between the prairie land, the 77 named mountain ranges that are part of the Rocky Mountains, and its 3,000 named lakes and reservoirs. Inside this wide-open space live more than 200 Montana museums with free admission, whose owners and volunteers are dedicated to the preservation of history and to sharing it with locals and visitors of the Big Sky Country. Its dynamic past — as the home of various indigenous peoples and American Indian tribes, such as Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Gros Ventres; the fur trappers and traders; gold miners; soldiers; and settlers inhabiting the lands — gives ammunition for stories that grow through the imaginations of our toddlers to our beloved elderly. It also provides ample material, scooped up by the rigorous work of historians, curators, documentarians, and storytellers — through which this great state survives. Here are three of the best Montana museums with free admission:
