Important notice: Saturday Hours to be Discontinued. As a result of legislation passed by the 2017 Legislature and signed by Governor Bullock, the Montana Historical Society is facing severe budget cuts. Unfortunately, this means that positions and services must be cut and, effective August 18, 2017, we will no longer be able to offer public reference hours on Saturdays. We are deeply distressed by this development and apologize for the inconveniences imposed.
