Montana is a great destination to visit if you are hoping to get out into the great outdoors and have adventures such as skiing, hiking and rafting and more. However, while the outdoors is calling, sometimes it’s nice to have a slower paced day and see what else Montana has in store for you. With a rich history and a number of museums, there’s always new things to learn and discover. One such museum is the Museum of Women’s History located in Billings.
The Museum of Women’s History was created as part of the commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage in Montana. The museum aims to show the role that women played during the history of Montana. Additionally, it also features stories of Women from around the world. The museum features a number of exhibits as well as multimedia options. There are photos, oral histories, videos, artifacts and more. You’ll find the Museum of Women’s History as 2822 Third Ave North B-3 in Billings.
This museum is for people of all ages and features women from all walks of life. Showcasing women from all professions, ethnic groups as well as local and international perspectives, the museum truly aims to showcase the extensive role that Women have had throughout history. The museum’s first location was actually located in the basement of McMullen Hall located at Montana State University in Billings. Soon, the museum quickly outgrew the space that the University had to offer. Afterward, the museum moved to its present location in downtown Billings. If you are looking for a fun way to add some change in your day, consider heading to the Museum of Women’s History. After a brief look at Women’s History, head back outdoors and enjoy all that the fantastic state of Montana has to offer.
