“Great Indian/Western art display”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

30-45 minutes of self-directed art examination. Indian art and traditional Glacier scene paintings. Well worth the entrance fee.

“Small but well-curated collection of artists from the Northwest.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Hockaday Museum is a jewelbox for the display of NW artists. It is not a large museum so people expecting an equivalent experience to a large city museum may be disappointed. However, there is a strong collection of artists from Montana and excellent travelling exhibits. A recent exhibit of Terrance Guardipee, a nationally known contemporary Blackfoot artist, is a good example. The museum also sponsors art classes and programs like Crits and Croissants (an opportunity to participate in critiques of artists' works over coffee), and Senior Teas (seniors come for tea and a docent talk).
