Published since 1951, Montana The Magazine of Western History showcases the people, places, and events that shaped the state and the western region. In addition to fascinating articles, the magazine features book and movie reviews, commentaries, Montana episodes, and advertising confined to rare and new books, art objects, and other products and events related to American—especially Western—history.

The quarterly magazine is lavishly illustrated with historical maps, drawings, and photographs from the Society's own collections and from other public and private sources. The larger 7⅞" x 10¾" size, along with full-color art on the cover and occasionally inside, sets the magazine apart from most of its genre.

For questions about advertising in the magazine and ordering back issues, email or call (406) 444-4708.
