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.

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!

This is a wonderful museum in a beautiful old building. The selections are often changing and they have a great gift shop which has local artists work for sale. Really a lovely place and a great way to spend a few hours.
