We offer interactive exhibits, a Research Center, and programming. The museum is housed in the 1906 North Side School, on the National Register of Historic Places.

Explore permanent exhibits that interpret the area’s native cultures; early expeditions, including the Corps of Discovery and Lewis and Clark; the railway’s role in bringing visitors to Yellowstone National Park and other transportation themes; and the stories and artifacts of early-day communities. Outdoor exhibits include a one-room schoolhouse; blacksmith shop; a fleet of transportation vehicles, including a caboose.

Current temporary exhibits include: Pull Up a Chair: Tales from the Seats of History; On Fire: Structural and Wildland Firefighting; A Military History of Park County; Communication:  A Changing Conversation; and One Hundred Years Ago in Park County. Upcoming exhibits include: Ice Age Mammals and an outdoor Agriculture (Farming and Ranching) exhibit.

New in 2020 are online exhibits. These include Exploring Yellowstone Through ART, a 2015 exhibit, which showcases twenty-five local artists and their inspirational stories; Glimmers of History, weekly social media posts that highlight photos and stories in our collections; and Honoring Park County Veterans: A Military History, personal stories from local veterans and more.
