Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent small museum. Great collection of local Montana artists and a showcase for young up and coming artists. Great special exit galleries. Be sure to catch the Barbara Van Cleve photography exhibit, simply marvelous. Small cafe on site and a small museum store.

There was very little in this museum to keep me interested. There was nothing to do with historical art, or even Native American art.

It’s a beautiful building. A cute cafe inside with decent food.

Having said that it’s a puzzle why this huge building appears to be empty of art, especially Montana art. Have not seen in three visits a Charlie Russel painting, a Mark Ogle painting, Joe Abbrescia, Thomas Moran, to name just a few. Haven’t seen a print of any Montana greats let alone originals. It’s a puzzle in such a large museum, it appears empty of serious art. Would think they could borrow art if they don’t have a large cash budget.

Definitely worth a stop when you're in Billings. It's downtown on the main street leading to and from the airport, so very easy to access. A wide range of art from traditional western to some wonderfully innovative modern art and installations that are wide open to interpretation. We enjoyed our visit.

I'm not typically much into art museums even though I've been to more than a few major ones. So I was hesitant but it was a rainy day so we drifted in. And I have to say that I loved the exhibits! I believe it was the work of Sean Chandler and Jesse Albrect but it was engaging and thought provoking. It was a memorable afternoon well worth the small entrance fee and time.

I enjoy the photography exhibits on Montana history and the cowboy (Western) Art exhibits, especially of Montana artists. All the other "modern" art isn't to my taste. Nice people though. I'm glad for the opportunity.

Easy parking & friendly staff. They were setting up new displays upstairs the day we visited. Meaning we only visited the lower level. Which had fabulous art in my opinion.
There is a local artists work gift shop with some very exciting pieces displayed and reasonably priced!

Go, you won't be disappointed even if you can only see 1/2 of it.
