Step into Libby’s rich past . . .

The Heritage Museum preserves the diverse historical culture and heritage of the Lincoln County, Montana area in northwest Montana. The unique twelve-sided, 130-foot diameter log structure houses artifacts from early Libby history of settlement, mining and logging. On the grounds surrounding the Museum are pieces of equipment from the early gold and silver mining era, logging equipment, log buildings, and “Ole Four Spot”, a Shay locomotive that served as a workhorse for the Libby Lumber Co and later the J. Neils Lumber Co. for logging operations in and around Libby, Montana in the early 1900s. The Museum is open for the summer season from the Saturday after Memorial Day through the end of August. Actual dates vary by year. Our archives are open by appointment only. Hours during the season are Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM, Sunday from 1-5PM. We are closed September through May (open by special appointment). Visits can be accommodated at other times by special arrangement. The Heritage Museum is staffed and operated by volunteers. Admission is by donation.
