This latest project aims to add environmental controls for fragile archival materials where there are currently none, to upgrade storage capacity in the special collections and archives, and to expand the education space.

Safe Spaces for Irreplaceable Artifacts and Historical Documents for Montana

As with all expansions and additions at the museum, the aim is to continue the mission to preserve our unique history.  Project goals include:

  • Climate control for artifacts and archives storage

  • Restoring windowed wall in our historic building for a Visible Vault where guests can observe preservation work and conservation treatments

  • New windows on the second floor

  • ADA accessible bathroom

  • Archival shelving for special collections
