Step back into the days of the old west.  Cowboys and cattle drives.  Coal mines, one room country schools and general stores.  Experience life as it was in the old west.  Tour an original log cabin built by English Lords for their early cattle operation.  With over 7,000 square feet of exhibit area you're sure to enjoy the experience.

The museum is open seven days per week from May through September.  Hours of operation are 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM.  There is no admission fee, however donations are gratefully accepted.

Come See the Many New Exhibits

The 2022 season was great with so many new displays and exhibits for you to enjoy.  More work will be done before next year's opening.

The new diorama shows visitors various significant historical locations throughout Musselshell County.  The surface is painted to realistically represent vegetation, water features and other conditions of the land.  The exhibit is interactive with marked locations having graphic display panels on the sides with title and description.  By pushing a button on the panel a visitor wishes to identify, the location of that particular point of interest is lit with an LED light embedded in the surface of the topographic display.

More updates:

Three small rooms have been built along the wall in the Art Room.  They house cattle drive memorabilia, and early-day barber shop, and a farm room containing farm related items.

The new coal exhibit is open.  Our thanks to Signal Peak Energy for major funding for this project.

The military exhibit has expanded.  A variety of new displays have been added.

Come see the 1913 John Deere "Johnny Popper" that has been completely restored to working order.
