Arts & Culture
Southwest Montana boasts a colorful and unique history. While the gold rush drew thousands to the region and heavily influenced the culture of the area, the influence of homesteaders and American Indians can clearly be seen across Southwest Montana. Across the region, you will find diverse displays of artwork in a variety of galleries and museums, as well as, an exploration of Montana’s culture through different historic sites, churches, museums, memorials and live theater. In addition, you’ll find an impressive mix of architecture throughout our communities that help tell the story of past and present residents.
