Montana is a treasure trove of natural beauty. While many visitors come to explore the state’s national parks, spring weather can make this a little tricky. But don’t let the variable temperatures or a little rain ruin your day. Instead, check out these three all-seasons Montana attractions. With a car rental from Journey Rent-A-Car, you can see and do all that Montana has to offer, rain or shine.
1. Museum of the Rockies
The Museum of the Rockies, located in Bozeman, is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Montana. The museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution and is renowned for its planetarium and dinosaur collection. There also are a variety of other exhibits on display, including the Tinsley House (an original pioneer log home), pioneer and Western art exhibits, and a tribute to the native peoples of Yellowstone country.
2. The C.M. Russell Museum Complex
Located just north of the Lewis and Clark National Forest lies the city of Great Falls and the C.M. Russell Museum. The museum celebrates the life and work of Charles M. Russell, a famed American artist also known as the Cowboy Artist. Visitors are privy to a large collection of Russell’s original works, documents, and artifacts relating to his career, as well as works from other artists displaying Montana’s history and culture. A highlight of the trip includes a tour of the original Russell House and Studio, and the Russell Riders Sculpture Garden.
3. The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center
While the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center won’t get you out of the rain, it is open to visitors 365 days a year, no matter the weather! The center is located in West Yellowstone and provides visitors with the opportunity to see wolves and bears up close. The center serves as a sanctuary for animals that are not able to survive in the wild, and allows visitors to observe their natural behaviors, including foraging, playing, and howling.
