Two centuries of military experiences in Montana are displayed in a museum complex at Fort Harrison near Helena. Open only on Thursday. Special tours are available by appointment. 

The museum’s displays, created under the direction of Helena artist Robert Morgan, follow the military in Montana from the arrival of the Lewis and Clark army expedition in 1805, through the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm and various peacekeeping operations. The military tradition dates from 1806 when Meriwether Lewis’ fatal clash with Blackfeet Indians was the U.S. Army’s first combat in the state.
