Welcome to the Central Montana Museum where the past lives on in the form of physical artifacts, displays and accompanying interpretation; a diverse collection of the local history books written by area residents; and educational media in electronic format. The Central Montana Museum is located at 408 Northeast Main Street in Lewistown, the geographical center of the state.
Here in the heart of Montana amidst the Belt, Highwood, Judith, Moccasin and Snowy Mountains, lies our home, a valley known as the Judith Basin. This area, which we proudly refer to as “Central Montana,” stretches westward to Arrow Creek, north to the Missouri River, and southeast toward the Musselshell River.
Some of the west’s most notorious characters - Calamity Jane, Kid Curry and Charles M. Russell to name a few - either resided in or frequented the area. As luck would have it, there’s a place where much of the history of Central Montana has been preserved.
