The 4th of July is always a big day at the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula, and Wednesday is no exception. Museum Director Bob Brown says the festivities start at 8 am sharp, with a breakfast provided by volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Historical Museum.

Entertainment, patriotic speeches and displays all start at 10 am, and continue all day. There will even be a special appearance by Patrick Henry himself.  Since the 4th of July celebration is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the museum, the cost of admission will be $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, $2 for students, and children under 6 will be admitted free. Brown says an entire carload can be admitted for just $15.
