Our Library and Archives close December 15, 2022 and will be shuttered for about two years while the collections are protected during building renovations.

Our final galleries close after Dec. 30, 2022, as construction workers move into the 70-year-old Veterans and Pioneers Building to do the renovations.

So swing by today for your history fix (admission is free), including our gallery filled with Charlie Russell’s artwork, and our “Portraits” exhibit. Then visit our Museum Store to take home a little Montana memento.
