TOP FIVE MUSEUMS

An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the Western Heritage Center brings the history of Billings and the surrounding region to life through interactive exhibits, historic artifact collections and education and outreach programs. It is housed in one of our city's oldest buildings, the original Parmly Billings Memorial Library.
 
Constructed in 1903 and designed by renowned architect Henry Janeway Hardenburgh, the Moss Mansion influenced the culture of Billings with its inspired craftsmanship and architecture. Tour the beautiful home to see the inner workings of the family through archived letters and documents.
 
The Yellowstone County Museum is a treasure chest of Montana’s past. Enter an authentic pioneer log cabin to see more than 15,000 artifacts representing the area’s history. The museum sits atop the rims at Logan International Airport overlooking the city of Billings and the scenic Yellowstone River Valley.
The Yellowstone Art Museum sparks imagination and curiosity through rotating exhibits and collections of art, significantly on Montana and its surrounding regions. Pick up a key to the Visible Vault for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into where and how art is stored when it’s not on display in the museum's exhibit.

Nestled on a 12,000-acre working sheep and cattle ranch, the Tippet Rise Art Center fuses art, music, architecture and nature together through seasonal classical music concerts and outdoor sculpture tours.
