About The museum is historical and chronological in content. Displays range from prehistoric times to the 20th century. No admission fees. Major displays include fossils, buffalo, Indian homesteaders, cattlemen, settlers, the railroad, the Civil War, and many miscellaneous displays that fit into those eras. Examples consist of a set of authentic medieval armor, a group of carved figures from native scoria rock, and a lovely display of turn-of-the-century gowns. On top of that, our train display has been expanded. Besides the main building there are two country stores, a blacksmith shop, buggy shed, a fire hall, log cabin, a restored country school, and a large display of farm machinery. Murals on the exterior walls depict actual historic events of Glendive and the immediate surrounding area. Indian encampment, buffalo, the wagon train of early settlers, Camp Canby, which was a military post, and the first site of the city itself. Be sure to pick up a Talking Trail Brochure and experience the story. Look for the Talking Trail signposts and download the mobile app or dial the phone number and enter the sign number to experience the story. We are a member of the Dino Trail, for more information about the Montana Dinosaur Trail go to
