I love the Yellowstone Art Museum. My children enjoyed the exhibits, especially the ones featuring students their age. The Museum is accessible and well lit. I was able to get my 96 year-old grandmother around to all the exhibits with ease.

I have to admit, I came in with very low expectations as this was "Billings, MT", not Rome, London, Vienna or Paris. I was in Billings for a "business" trip but had some time to kill, and it was just a couple blocks from my...More
