Excellent Historical Museum Apr 08, 2017
Unless your ONLY interest in coming to Red Lodge are the outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities and the spectacular scenery, and you have NO interest in the history of the area the Carbon County Historical Museum is a must see. The museum has a number of very well done displays about the history of Red Lodge and the area including: Indians, homesteaders, ranching, mining, winter recreation, military history, rodeo, a nice gun collection, and more. Do not miss the mines in the basement. Also read about "Liver Eatin'" Johnston. Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday, and 11 AM to 4 PM Sunday (Memorial Day through Labor Day) and 11 AM to 4 PM Friday and Saturday (between Labor Day and Memorial Day). Admission is $5 for adults; $3 for seniors (over 60); students; and military. Children 5 and under are FREE. The building itself is also historical. It was completed in 1909 as a "Labor Temple" for the local mining union. It included a meeting hall, office space, a saloon, and a library. Most of the patrons were from the British Isles, as the Finns, Slavs and miners from other parts of the world had their own places to gather. The mining union in Butte contributed a lot of the money for the building.
