Pleasantly surprised to see the modern work exhibited at such a small local museum. A visit of about 60-90 minutes would be enough to see the exhibits which are located in a few small rooms. Good place to go if you are interested in art.

The Missoula Art Museum is always a great visit! The exhibits, staff and events are always an amazing experience. If you work for a school or have children, their children's art classes and tours geared toward children can't be beat!!

We spent about 90 minutes visiting the MAM and although I would say 80% of the "art" was not worth the time, the 20% that was made the visit a real treat.
