Ravalli County Museum

205 Bedford Street
Hamilton, MT 59840


About Us:

Ravalli County Museum at the Old Courthouse houses many unique and rare historical collections from our Native American heritage and establishment of Montana’s first white settlement in the heart of Ravalli County. The Museum was once the Ravalli County Courthouse built in 1900 and designed by A.J. Gibson. It is significant symbolically and historically as it was the hub of social and political activity and has remained so since becoming the repository of the Bitter Root Valley’s artifacts, collections, and oral histories.

Ravalli County Museum at the Old Courthouse is owned and operated by the Bitter Root Valley Historical Society.

Ravalli County Museum at the Old Courthouse is a community treasure that is sustained by the generosity of people like you!
