Northwest Montana has a rich history that melds Native American, logging, fishing, trapping, farming and railroad cultures. Learning about that history and tradition adds a great deal of perspective to your time in the outdoors. It helps you understand how communities took root here and how we continue to balance economy and culture with the wildness that surrounds us.

Kalispell is an artistic community filled with great musicians, photographers and painters. We highly recommend taking in a Glacier Symphony concert, touring the Hockaday Museum of Art, spending time in the galleries downtown, visiting the Conrad Mansion, exploring The Museum at Central School and shopping our farmers market on Saturday mornings.
You’ll come away with a perspective on Kalispell that not even a hike to 10,000 feet could give.
Visit Montanas Cultural Treasures to discover the vast and diverse talent throughout Montana.
