Livingston Depot Museum opens Sat. May 25

2024 Summer Season

The Depot Museum presents its 2024 special exhibit  Wondrous West: Art, Tourism & National Pride.  This presentation is full of vintage imagery from curator and historian Lee Silliman’s print collection and features advertising campaigns from railroads and travel bureaus spanning nearly a century of America’s romance with Western tourism which encouraged the nation to “See America First”.   On June 6th, 5-6pm, Curator Lee Silliman will offer a unique presentation entitled, “Searching for the Golden West: A History of Western Tourism”.  A Reception will follow 6:00-8:00 pm. Both are free and open to the public.

The ongoing main exhibit “Rails Across the Rockies: A Century of People and Places” introduces visitors to the rich history of railroading in Montana. It gives special attention to the Northern Pacific and its central role in the opening of Yellowstone, America’s first national park, through Livingston beginning in the 1880s.  In addition to its main and special exhibit, the museum also presents “Remarkable Migrations,” an adaptation of the groundbreaking exhibit by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, WY.

The Depot Museum is located at 200 West Park and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. There is a nominal admission, and group visits are also welcome by special arrangement. 406-222-2300
