Charlie Russell captured the spirit of the Old West more clearly and lovingly than any other artist. His watercolors, oil paintings, bronzes and sketches offer a personal view of Montana life at the turn of the century. The C. M. Russell Museum has the most complete collection of his works, letters, and personal objects you’ll find anywhere. On display is the original log Cabin Studio, built in 1903, where Russell not only entertained friends with his lively stories and campfire cooking, but also completed most of his works. The Russell Home, a designated National Historic Landmark, is located right next door. The museum and gift shop are open year round. There is a modest admission fee.
