History has unfolded over the centuries, which has left an abundance of stories that give us a foundation to understand the present. The story of Fort Missoula begins in 1877, when it acted as a military post. Today, the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula shares the stories and objects from the rich history and culture of western Montana.

There are over 20 preserved historic buildings and structures on the walkable 32-acre site. The Historical Museum offers visitors a place to wonder, to reminisce, to learn about our county’s history and how our community’s past makes Missoula what it is today.

The Historical Museum provides programs for both adults and children to help guide their discovery of their own connection to the stories of our past. Programs range from crafts and conversations, after-school/homeschool/summer activities to book talks, lectures, annual Old-Fashioned 4th at the Fort Celebrations, and much more.

The Historical Museum also provides tours about the history of Missoula County, WWII Alien Detention Center, the 25th Infantry African American Bicycle Corps., and more. The Historical Museum at Fort Missoula offers endless opportunities as the exhibits rotate annually and for special events.
