  • Great way to learn more about the Plains Indians since this place is small enough that you can really absorb what they share. Authentic items and concise descriptions. Enjoyed seeing the works of locql artists and chatting with them.
  • This is a small, but very well-done museum documenting the history of the Plains Indians on the Blackfeet Reservation in Browning Mt. Only $4 for Seniors is a bargain. The displays are amazing and interesting. Worth a couple of hours to view. There is a gift shop and some Native American artists to purchase items from
  • A humble museum with two historical galleries, a video room with surprisingly intriguing diorama (never thought I’d say that about diorama), a contemporary First Peoples art gallery complete with modern women’s dresses utilizing native motifs - incredible, have you seen Vogue lately? The museum also has art workshops. I was fortunate to meet the son of Ernest Marceau, John, who is an aspiring artist himself. #blackfeetledgerart As I was approaching the museum I noticed the ironwork on the building. I couldn’t help but imagine Frank Lloyd Wright “culturally appropriating” these incredible patterns in his buildings. Take a look!
  • Small museum but a wonderful display of the intricate handwork of the Plains Indians. Tools, clothing, tack for their horses and more. Artists are sometimes working and there is a video to watch. Check out the gift shop, especially kids. Children can make a beaded bracelet and receive a free arrowhead.
  • Informative self guided tour. Many artifacts, from clothing to living tools, blankets, weapons. Local artists on site when we were there.
