We visited two wonderful museums today. The Power River Historical Museum in Broadus, MT and the Tri-State Museum in Belle Fourche, SD. I would highly recommend both of them. But next time I would visit them in different days. Too many wonderful things to see. And both museums are free.
The museum in Broadus is amazing. The town only has about 500 people but the museum is filled with wonderful, old items donated by people who have lived in this area for years. It also contains the original jail house which was built in 1919.
Mac’s Museum is part of the Power River Museum. Mac McCurdy put together a collection of over 22,000 seashells (largest west of the Mississippi), 1723 arrowheads from nearly every state, 2230 mineral specimens, bird eggs, and butterflies. No pictures were allowed in Mac’s Museum but it is incredible.
Can’t imagine how old time bank robbers ever thought they could get into one of these safes.
