At-home History Resources

Welcome to the Montana Historical Society website. While it feels like we are living in unprecedented times, those familiar with the past know that history is marked both by times of great tumult and suffering as well as joy and celebration. Since 1865, the Montana Historical Society has been here to preserve the Treasure State’s story—good and bad—and share that story with its citizens. After being in quarantine mode for a few months, we are now open to the general public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and hope to switch back to a Monday through Saturday schedule in July.

If you can’t make to our Helena location, our website offers many educational and entertaining resources for you and your family. Specifically:

Check back often. We look forward to seeing you in person soon!
