Until the local population decides to elect officials who will work together for the benefit of all members of the tribe, Browning will continue to spiral downward. Law enforcement is everywhere! Is this law presence because of high crime? When we visited the museum, there...More

Don't believe everything negative you read about Browning, Montana and the Blackfeet Indian reservation. Although located in a remote area of Northwest, Montana, Browning is a natural stop for travelers on their way to Glacier National Park, whose entrance is not far down the road....More

Yes, Browning is a poverty stricken community with very humble offerings yet it is rich in its culture & worth experiencing if you can get past your aversion to patronising the impoverished. Amercan Indian Reservations are impoverished, this is just the plain truth of it...More

We traveled the twelve miles to Browning to check out the Trading Post and The Museum of The Plains Indian. The Museum itself- while small- has an impressive collection. And has one room devoted to the works of contemporary artists. In the very back they...More
