Founded in 1991, the Montana Natural History Center was established to provide a history center for the public. The mission of MNHC is to promote the positive reception, understanding, and proper care of nature through learning. The center was originally located inside the University of Montana but eventually grew and purchased its own home in 2004 at 120 Hickory Street.

Some of the most exciting activities and educational programs offered at the center include the Summer Science Day Camps for k-8th*graders, Visiting Naturalist in the Schools for 4th and 5th graders, and Visiting Naturalists After School for 3rd-5th graders.

There are also other community activities that provide educational, interactive, and entertaining opportunities for people of all ages. Such activities include Saturday Discovery Days, wherein participants are taken to a field trip outside and the Evening Lecture Series, which offers a presentation on various subjects.

Finally, you can be a true naturalist yourself by joining the Wildlands Restoration Volunteers and attending the Montana Master Naturalist Class. All of these are part of the Montana Natural History
