Didn't think much was inside but was pleasantly surprised, between the courtroom and judges office upstairs, to the jail and other displays downstairs. Plus the price is very reasonable.

Admission is only $3 so well worth going for a look. Informative and always nice to get a better feel for an area's history.

This Museum is very quaint and has lots in it. The history of barb wire is even included. It has an old jail cell and lots of wanted posters. We found a poster of someone involved in a bombing from the town we live in...More

This is a relatively small museum that highlights the history of Medora and the surrounding county. The museum is located in the old Billings County Courthouse building.

This is a nice place to stop if you have an hour to spare in Medora. The admission price is reasonable. The kids liked all the military displays, the old jail, and the courthouse. There is an extensive barbed wire fence display.

This is a great little hidden gem in the city of Medora. Lots of cool artifacts. The courtroom is located upstairs and the jail and city offices are on the bottom floor. Allow about 1 hour to view the whole museum. I think the cost...More

The Billings County Court House Museum isn’t a top tier museum in the regional context, nor does it claim to be. However, it has interesting exhibits and very low admission fees. Considering the other attractions in/near Medora, this would be a secondary or rainy day...More

Great place with interesting local history and relics. It was nice to learn about this area and I really liked seeing the old guns and the barb wire exhibit was cool as well.
