The Ravalli County Museum has a new display for the whole family - Big Toys.

The big toys are interactive creations in the main display area on the second floor. The homemade creations are fun to watch and play with. They also help demonstrate some basic scientific theories.

Director Tamar Stanley said one of the exhibits comes from the popular SpectrUM group in Missoula. The display will be up for a time after the New Year.

We visited the museum and got a video preview with Tamar.

The museum is at the corner of South 3rd and Bedford in Hamilton. The building is the old Ravalli County Courthouse and also houses an archive of historical photos, newspapers and more.

And don't miss the amazing Chinese historic art exhibit.
