The Ravalli County Museum decided to have a "free day" on Thursdays, so people can see the latest exhibits. Then, this month they announced that they will be open "late" on Thursday evenings - also free.
The Museum will stay open until 8pm on Thursdays and one of the reasons is to highlight all the different displays.
The museum is the former Ravalli County Courthouse and has undergone some serious renovation recently, with more planned. In the rooms of the building you'll find:

  • the Discovery Exhibit with murals of Lewis and Clark meeting the Salish in the Sula area
  • The National Senior Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame on the Main Floor Gallery.
  • The Passion, The Perserverance=The Process - the fine art of wildlife in glass from artist Kathleen Sheard.
  • A Walk through the Bitterroot - Dioramas and displays of the landscape of Darby, Conner, Sula and Hamilton as they looked in the 1900s.
  • Bertie Lord, Pioneer Photographer - photo equipment and prints from the late 1800s to the early 1900s on the Main Floor Gallery.
  • Take advantage of the great opportunity to see some great history in Hamilton. The Ravalli County Museum is on the corner of South 3rd and Bedford.
