  • I have made three visits to this museum over the past 40 years and each time there is something new. I like how not only Russell's work is displayed, but information about buffaloes and Native America...  more »

  • Beautiful, modern museum with a wide variety of Western artists. Give yourself plenty of time to read a description of the art. While traveling through the museum, you can appreciate Charlie's growth ...  more »

  • The C.M. Russell Museum is a tucked away, western secret. Galleries of art depict cowboys experiencing the world from a whole different point of view. The display of traditional, Native American wear is quite amazing. Models of miniature, wheeled transportation is fun to see and there is even an area for the kids to dress up and imagine they are living life out on the range.
  • A wonderful museum for western and particularly northern Rocky Mountains and plains art and art history. A must see for any visitor to Great Falls. The Charlie Russell story and the collection of much of his work on permanent display provide real insight to how the west evolved and grew from wild to settled and civilized.
  • Very nicely displayed and informative! I would go back... Fantastic Gift Shop as well! Reasonably priced admission. Plenty of parking.
  • I love the holiday activities they for the kids . I love the giftshop. They have an amazing history about what happen In the day before montana existed
  • If you're interested in history your review might look different. It was interesting enough, well put together and easy to follow. Security needs to work on attitude though. I missed the sign saying no drinks since I went in the exhibit from an odd direction, the lady at the desk didn't say a word about my water bottle. But oh my god, when I took a drink from my water security was sure to come over and yell at me for bringing it in. His behavior was on the level that I was acting like I was spraying the pictures. Very rude. I left right after that.
