This was probably the best historical activity we did in Missoula, a great way to learn about the area's history. We particularly enjoyed the old postcard collection. Allow plenty of time to enjoy all of the out buildings.

Lots of displays from most of the conflicts the US has been involved in during the 20th and 21st century. Anyone who is a Military Free Fall Parachutist should check out the Vietnam era HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) display. Not something everyone will appreciate...More

We were there with some younger kids, so it was fun for them to run around and see what life was like many years ago.

There is a donation amount requested just for the museum. The spacious grounds and the fort are free of charge.
