Museum of the Plains Indian
The Museum of the Plains Indian is a hidden gem located near Glacier National Park in Browning, MT. Collaborating with the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service, the museum was founded in 1941 and focusses on the varied art, historic clothing, horse gear, weapons, and other artifacts of the Northern Tribal Plains people. Tribes represented include the Blackfeet, Crow, Northern Cheyenne, Sioux, Assiniboine, Arapaho, Shoshone, Nez Perce, Flathead, Chippewa, and Cree.
Staff are informative and knowledgeable in the rich history and cultural practices of Native American Indians, with exhibits rotating seasonally. Although photography is prohibited inside the museum, a small gift shop offers original, authentic jewelry, and other gifts crafted by emerging and local Native American artists.
