Yellowstone County Museum
Hours Monday - Friday: 10:30am - 5pm Saturday: 10:30am - 3pm
Yellowstone County Museum was organized in 1953 and sits atop the rims at Logan International Airport overlooking the city of Billings and the scenic Yellowstone River Valley. Entrance to the more than 15,000 artifacts representing the area's history is through a pioneer log cabin. The museum is free of charge and open 11 months of the year. It is truly a treasure chest of Montana's past and is supported by funding from Yellowstone County and private donations. A wealthy cattleman's den, a log cabin, built in Billings in 1892, houses a collection of items from the Yellowstone Valley. Included in the collection a 'Roundup Wagon' or 'Chuck Wagon' a sheep wagon, Native American artifacts, and cowboy and western artifacts. The museum is much larger than it appears as over 5,000 square feet of display area is located in the lower level.
