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. Although our facilities are currently closed to the public, please know that we are still hard at work preserving the historic treasures we care for, and our website offers many educational and entertaining resources for you and your family as you shelter in place.


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