Montana Military Museum is located on the Montana National Guard Training Center, Fort William Henry Harrison. The Montana state legislature has recognized as the official military museum for Montana. Fort Harrison, established 1892, is located on the edge of Helena, the Capital City of Montana, more affectionately known as the Queen City of the Rocky Mountains. The Montana Military History program was officially established in 1984 as an authorized U.S Army Center of Military History Museum Activity.
In 1997 we were able to open our first exhibit in an historic building group called the Regimental Ordnance and Quartermaster Warehouse complex. We now have approximately 3,000 feet of exhibits as well as remote displays throughout Fort Harrison.
