The museum and adjacent, recently renovated, historic home with beautiful gardens are easily found on Highway 2 East in Malta. 2009 renovations have transformed the museum's primary exhibit area and visitors will have new experiences within the life-size replicas of a cowboy bunkhouse, one-room schoolhouse, church, and mercantile.
Authentic artifacts from the Homestead Era, Native American Culture, notable Wild Bunch Outlaws Kid Curry and Dutch Henry, and "Elvis," a 33 foot adult Brachylophosaurus are special features. The genealogy department has been expanded to assist in tracing family histories and the exterior grounds are being transformed into a native bird sanctuary with walking trail along the Milk River. This is an official site on the Montana Dinosaur Trail, hosting a tourist information center and an on-site gift shop.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children, and free for those under the age of 5. Immediate family members qualify for a special family rate of $12.00 (Example of immediate family: father, mother, and children). Special rates are also available for group tours. Museum Hours are April through December 10:00am-5:00pm Monday through Saturday. The museum is closed on Sundays. Contact the museum for further information at (406) 654-1037.
