ExploreBig Site and App

ExploreBig: Montana's Historic Places is a website and mobile app to help you discover Montana's rich cultural resources.  Curated by the Montana Historical Society, ExploreBig shares the history and architecture of selected buildings, neighborhoods, and cultural sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the nation's official list of cultural resources deemed worthy of preservation. The site's mobile markers reproduce National Register signs placed at the sites themselves as part of a program, funded through the state's accommodations tax, to improve public knowledge and promote historic preservation.

Community-based organizations may contribute to the project. Please review the Montana National Register Historical Marker Sign Text, identify relevant historical photographs within your collection, and contact mhsdigital@mt.gov for submission guidelines.
