Darby Pioneer Memorial Museum

Search Darby Montana

The museum was originally one of the first hand-hewn homestead cabins built in the area. It was crafted by early settler Evelin Matteson in 1886 on his homestead near the mouth of Tin Cup Creek. It was purchased by an interested citizen in 1958, who paid to have it moved to its present location, adjacent to the city park on Highway 93. It now holds collections of home and business artifacts saved by the many pioneer families of the area.

Open June, July and August. 1:00pm to 5:00pm Monday though Friday and during the Strawberry Festival (3rd Saturday in July). Located behind the public library and city hall, bordering the city park.
