Located at one of Montana's first military posts, this museum houses rotating exhibits and devotes an entire wing to the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps. A recreated Western town of the late 1800s takes visitors back in time to the days of carriage houses and homestead cabins.

We visited Ft. Missoula not really knowing what to expect. The visitor center didn't open until noon,but we were able to do a walking tour around the fort and learn about history of this location. Currently there is also some construction.

I'm not into logging, and never thought about being into logging, but wow, now I'm a fan. Great collection of equipment that stretches back over 100 years. Steampunk glory, too.
