The Main Museum occupies 7,200 square feet of space that is occupied by an office, archive, collection storage, a large exhibit area, and the Museum?s Gift Shop. On the Museum Grounds, visitor can find the T. T. Brown Schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, the Albert Johnson Tack Shop, a 6,000-square-foot building which houses special large collections as well as a sizeable outdoor area of displayed farming equipment.

The tour includes the 1960?s Northern Pacific Caboose that was donated by Burlington Northern/Santa Fe Railroad Company as well as indoor exhibits featuring a military section that pay tribute to native Donald J. Ruhl, one of the seven Congressional Medal of Honor recipients of Montana.
