The Hockaday Museum's exhibitions focus on the art and culture of Montana and the artists of Glacier National Park. The Museum offers rotating exhibits of works by nationally renowned and emerging artists and a permanent exhibition entitled 'Crown of the Continent: Glacier National Park Gallery.' This exhibit focuses on the painters, photographers, authors, sculptors and collectibles of Glacier National Park, both past and present. The exhibition always features the rich art history of the Park, though the artists change from time to time. It includes the work of Marshall Noice, T.J. Hileman, John Clarke, John Fery, Ace Powell, Robert M. Stephens, Leonard Lopp, Charlie Russell, and other early and contemporary artists of the Park.
Children will enjoy a Discovery Gallery with hands-on activities, which change in theme along with the rotating exhibits. The Museum's Off the Wall Gift Gallery offers unique gifts created by local artists including a great selection of pottery, jewelry, cards, t-shirts, artwork, and books on the art, history, and culture of Montana, as well as prints by Ace Powell, Bud Helbig, Jeanne Hamilton, Hugh Hockaday, Edward Curtis and others.
Don't miss Arts in the Park, Northwest Montana's largest arts festival with food and entertainment the fourth weekend of July in Kalispell's Depot Park as a benefit for the Museum.
The Hockaday Museum is housed in a turn of the century Carnegie Library Building, listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.
