Located at one of Montana's first military posts, this museum houses rotating exhibits and devotes an entire wing to the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps. A recreated Western town of the late 1800s takes visitors back in time to the days of carriage houses and homestead cabins.

I'm not into logging, and never thought about being into logging, but wow, now I'm a fan. Great collection of equipment that stretches back over 100 years. Steampunk glory, too.

A few interesting things to see I would not go out of the way to see it but nothing special in my opinion.

This was quite a pleasant surprise. While I expected a comprehensive history I was amazed with the history itself. While the museum is small it presents a very comprehensive and compact historical account of the fort. A smart move on my part was to start...More

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.

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