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.

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.

Lots of displays from most of the conflicts the US has been involved in during the 20th and 21st century. Anyone who is a Military Free Fall Parachutist should check out the Vietnam era HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) display. Not something everyone will appreciate...More
