About
Come experience Live History Days at the Miracle of America Museum, Polson, MT. With a kid and family friendly atmosphere always in mind, expect to find many photo opportunities. Pretend driving a "dragster" race car, or have your photo taken with a minion. A favorite for many kids is to sit in a real jet fighter and have their picture taken. Speaking of flying, nearby is a real carnival/circus ride, a 1948 Fly-O-Plane which we operate. We could use help in the loading and unloading of first time or even frequent flyers. Because of liability concerns, we don't lift the planes high in the air, but all the squeals of delight and smiles prove the joy of riding in such a historic and rare contrivance. Live demonstrators include glassblowing, blacksmithing and flint knapping. Perhaps you like reading to children and our school marms could use a break to grab some food or ice cream treats at the fountain ,or observe arrowheads being made the old way, or watch a custom made piece you ordered from our glass blower, blacksmith or leather workers If your kiddies like to play dress up in their grandmothers clothes, bring them and be a part of the festivities. Playground supervisors and someone to explain the hydraulics of the schoolhouse pump is another. Veterans might like to supervise the firing of our 106 recoilless rifle mounted on a Vietnam era "Mule" although we shoot tennis balls using compressed air instead of live ammo. A few steps away is a vintage flywheel engine powered can crusher which definitely needs adult supervision. Whether it be music, spinning, carving or something historic we hadn't thought of yet, you could be an important link to keeping history alive. And don't forget the rides from trains, motorcycle sidecar, tractor or military rigs!.
