HISTORY OF THE FLATHEAD VALLEY:
This new exhibition, currently under construction, is taking shape with new panels and inter-active displays that tell the stories of how we got here, why we came and why we stay. Learn the history of our area’s first inhabitants, early settlers, and the short but glorious rein of steamboats on Flathead Lake.
ROBIN LOSNAK PHOTOS FEATURED:
For a decade the dynamic color photographs of Robin Loznak graced the pages of Kalispell’s Daily InterLake newspaper. From May through October in the Museum’s entry hall we are pleased to present this retrospective of some of the best of his work—portraits of people, places and events that reveal much about life in the Flathead Valley.
100 Year-Old Newspapers On Display:
The Museum now has two newspaper displays of the original turn-of-the century editions of the Kalispell Bee and the Flathead Herald Journal which were either weekly or bi-weekly 100 years ago. The display will show the century-old edition closest to the current date.
Each week visitors will be able to come in and read what was happening in Flathead Valley exactly 100 years ago, and we will keep the display current by cycling through the editions as the days go by. It makes for fascinating reading.
Western Native American Culture Exhibit at the Museum at Central School. Opened in January 2005, this authentic collection of rare and diverse Native American artifacts reveals much about the Golden Age of the Indian from 1750 to 1875. The exhibit features tools and weapons of bone and stone, beaded items, clothing old and new of hide, trade cloth and muslin, toys of Indian children, and a full size Indian tipi. This is an Indian-based exhibit of unusual authenticity not to be missed.
