Occasional student art classes and exhibitions offered. I love seeing beginner and experienced artists together under one roof. Often amazing local artists offer a fresh new perspective of Glacier National Park and other Montana beauty.

We always. Is it when there is a new exhibit - great pieces from 30 local artists on the local area including Glacier Matilnal Park as well as great photography by a local photographer. You can't go wrong by visiting.

Great local history and very helpful volunteers. Enjoyed the art and the cookies and coffee on Senior day. I took my mother with me.

It's only $5 to get in. Their collection features works on Glacier Park, work by local artists, and works showing Montana history and Native Americans. While mostly paintings there were some sculpture and photographs as well. 2 large rooms on the 1st floor plus works...More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The museum, however, is very small, in a remote location and probably underfunded. As such, there isn’t anything there worth a visit.

We stopped by while passing through to Glacier because we know some Hockaday's in Iowa. Museum is small'ish but nicely done. It's in a former Carnegie library building. For $5 admission it's worth stopping by.

Museum features local artists specializing in Native American art. Art lessons are popular with school children. There is a nice gift shop too.

This is a beautiful building and they do well at holding specific art displays. Keep an eye on their website for what's coming up. I am local and go 3-4 times a year.

Really enjoyed all the art you had there. Wonderful to see a lot of new artist. Also got to see your local school art show, which was fantastic. Good to see your community really supports art in the schools. Keep up the great work!
