Polson Flathead Historical Museum

"Share in the Homestead Heritage of the Mission Valley and Flathead Lake area as it is preserved in the Polson-Flathead Historical Museum. Other area museums focus on the Native American presence in the region, but our museum focuses on the pioneers and homesteaders who first inhabited the region. See the development of the area progress over the years through viewing real-life exhibits such as

*The Trading Post, actually see what it was really like to shop in the only store in the region in the 1880's!
*The Flathead "Monster"!
*Marvel at the stagecoaches and buggies that carried passengers to, through and from the Valley!
*Old time Fire Trucks!
*Stand in the middle of a true-to-life kitchen from the 'good old days' and imagine what it was like to cook a meal, wash clothes or preserve food with few labor saving devices!"
