Montana Historical Society

Big Sky. Big Land. Big History.

Guided Tours

The Historical Society offers tours of three of the state's most notable historic treasures:

The Montana Historical Society Museum ("Montana's Museum") Explore a variety of temporary and long-term exhibits detailing all aspects of the Treasure State's rich and diverse history.

The Montana State Capitol As a result of budget cuts imposed by the 2017 Legislature, guided tours of Montana's statehouse are no longer being given. You can still explore the Capitol on your own with the aid of self-guiding tour booklets and a scavenger hunt for kids led by Lewis and Clark’s intrepid Newfoundland, Seaman. These are available at the information desk on the first floor of the Capitol. You can also download the interactive student guide to the Montana State Capitol, Explore Your Statehouse or take this forty-three minute video tour.

The Original Governor's Mansion Visit this ornate, Queen Anne-Style mansion that served as home to Montana's First Families from 1913-1959. Take yourself on a virtual tour of the Original Governor's Mansion or view a twenty-minute video tour.
