Beaverhead County Museum


  • Museum
Beaverhead County Museum has been collecting, preserving, displaying and interpreting local history for over 50 years. The museum is housed in a log building complex in downtown Dillon. Our friendly volunteers will greet you at the door and offer a wealth of information. Visitors will see an authentic homesteader's cabin, the first flush toilet outhouse in Dillon, mining and agriculture equipment and can enjoy a picnic in our pavilion. Additions to the museum include a Lewis and Clark diorama, a natural history exhibit and a small theater, a one room school house, and a 1909 Union Pacific Depot. We are available for research about the area including family research.
