Search Polson Montana

Displays that depict the late 1800's and early 1900's are exhibited both inside the museum building and in the spacious yard. There are old buggies and wagons, a jail cell, farm equipment from old-time homesteads and a Historic Trading Post dating to 1881. The Post has been restored and contains other exhibits.

In the museum, the visitor can take a few minutes or a few hours and rub elbows with Flathead history, finding fascinating displays of the hardy valley homesteaders, the steamboaters, the cattle ranchers, and the development of Polson.

Open daily from 9:00 to 6:00, except noon to 6:00 on Sunday.
