The MT Historical Society Museum is a gem! Located near the MT State Capitol building, the museum features an excellent Charlie Russell gallery and gives visitors a walk through Montana's history. Their gift shop also has many great, hard to find items. A must visit while in Helena!

We have been to 25 plus museums across this beautiful country. This one was one of the best! So many authentic artifacts of the area. Thoroughly enjoyed

Have visited this museum twice since landing in this area. What a treat. Plan to spend at least two hours if you want to really soak it all in. A beautiful museum with thousands of artifacts of the old west. And a lovely souvenir shop will grab your attention. Put this on your list of things to do when visiting Helena.

This museum is truly a Western Treasure that everyone should take time to visit. The Charlie Russell display is a must-see for anyone interested in western-themed art. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the museum shop is well stocked with interesting items to purchase.

The Museum is a wonderful place to go for adults and children. The art work is amazing and shows the history of the state. The children’s area kept my grandson very happy. The best part for me is the gift shop with wonderful and hard to find Montana books, especially the women’s history area. Great afternoon visit.
