Overview Service & Activities
About The National Museum of Forest Service History is a nonprofit organization independent of the USDA Forest Service. Our mission is to share the rich history and story of our country's conservation legacy. The Museum has a 50,000 item archival collection of photographs, historic artifacts, documents, and books, many of which are available online. We also have traveling and virtual exhibits. The Museum's 31-acre campus sits a mile west of the Missoula Airport and is open seasonally Memorial Day -Labor Day with no admission fees. It features an historic Ranger's Cabin that serves as the Visitor's Center with exhibits and a gift shop; a self-toured Forest Discovery Trail that winds among a Champion Grove of trees with interactive and interpretive panels about our country's conservation history; an "L-4" Fire Lookout; a pack corral; and a beautiful timber-framed Pavilion that hosts numerous well-attended public events. Our newest exhibit is a fully-restored P2V firefighting aircraft. Our Capital Campaign for the National Conservation Legacy Center, our ~25,000sf flagship facility, is nearing completion, with construction planned to begin in 2024 on the Missoula campus.
