The Gallatin History Museum offers a unique glimpse into the area’s past. In addition to jail cells and a hanging gallows, the museum maintains displays illustrating the unique histories of a variety of people who have called Southwest Montana home. Permanent exhibits include Native American history in the Gallatin Valley, a model of old Fort Ellis, the infamous Big Horn Gun, five generations of wedding dresses from the Accola-Spain family, and even a porcelain doll that belonged to a girl who came to Bozeman by wagon in 1864. A reconstructed log cabin stands beside Bozeman’s first steam-powered fire engine and a 30+ piece gun collection.

Awesome museum that shows you the real roots of Bozeman. (One of my favorites that few people know about).

An often overlooked gem with knowledgeable local volunteers to lead you through our Gallatin Valley's colorful past. Don't forget to ask where they put the bad guys on time out.

Fun (and cheap) place to learn about local history. This used to be the city's jail until the early 80's and you can go sit inside an old jail cell!
