It use to be a wonderful small museum with changing exhibitions but due to poor financial management it has evolved into an over crowded "art center" with shows by the same insetuious group of artists showing the sane old thing. More dedicated to children's education...More

My daughter is an amazing artist so we went to pacify her but when we got there I found out that it was really an enjoyable experience. I'd suggest it as a great time for anyone whether you love art or not.

We recently saw an art show by Bitterroot Valley artist Pam Caughey, at the Holter Museum. The lighting and gallery space were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the workj shown as well as the museum environment.

It's an art museum in the middle of an area not known for art. They do what they can. It's not worth going out of the way for.

Very small building (I know I should have probably expected that). If you like Charlie Russel's brand of Western Art, this is definitely for you. Beyond that there's not much else save for special exhibits - When I was there it was a motorcycle exhibit...More
