Nevada City Living History Museum

Relive the excitement of the Gold Rush era in Montana. Our outdoor museum houses one of the largest collections of Old West artifacts outside the Smithsonian and has one hundred 1863 to early 1900 buildings. The Nevada City Museum uses exhibits and artifacts to help you experience the culture, time and place engaging all of your senses as you discover early Montana. Every week-end between Memorial day and Labor Day you’ll witness what it was like to live in a frontier mining town as history comes alive.
