The Montana Historical Society promotes an understanding and appreciation of Montana’s cultural heritage—past, present, and future.
MHS preserves Montana’s past for the future. Art, artifacts, memoirs, photographs, maps, personal and business records, oral histories, books, films, and manuscripts are among the treasures they hold and care for so that the accounts of the past will be available for future generations.
At the same time, MHS actively engages people of all ages in discovering Montana’s rich heritage. You can see world-class exhibits at Montana’s Museum, delve into your own past at the Research Center, read about great and little-known episodes of Montana’s history in Montana The Magazine of Western History, or explore the stories of historic buildings from Montana’s National Register listings. All year long MHS offers dozens of programs and events you can attend, or view them on the MHS YouTube channel. There are limitless opportunities for all to connect with our past.
