- General info
Trace the development of the automobile and the use Montanans put it to in this newly refurbished museum. Over 110 cars on display from the 1903 Ford Runabout to the Muscle Cars of the early 70s. Historical photographs show the cars in use. “Vintage Camping Vehicles” highlighted by a 1928 Pierce Arrow Motor Home and “Mustangs and Muscle Cars” are some of the recent exhibits.
A Display of the America Civil War Dioramas were donated to the museum by the Lance Krieg family of Montana. These dioramas are detailed hand-made historical scenes with accuracy and are one of a kind.
The Old Montana Prison has self-guided and guided tours through the intimidating Cell House, the black box maximum security area, and the slide bar cells. There is a "Prison Life" photo display and a video shown at the Clark Theater called Galloping Gallows.
Open daily 8 a.m.–8 p.m. June–Aug.; 8:30 a.m. –5:30 p.m. Apr.–May and Sept.–Oct.; otherwise varies.
