C.M. Russell Museum
The home of Charlie Russell, the art and soul of the American West.
The award-winning C.M. Russell Museum contains more than 3,000 pieces of Western art in a complex that covers an entire city block and encompasses 16 exhibition galleries, educational programming spaces, a dedicated research center, and an impressive outdoor sculpture garden. With nearly 1,000 Charles M. Russell creations in our collection, the museum presents Russell’s comprehensive, very personal, and authentic reflection on Western history. Also showcased are Russell contemporaries who have captured the traditions of North Plains Indian life, Montana wildlife and landscapes, and cowboy culture. You will discover important work by O.C. Seltzer, Winold Reiss, Joseph H. Sharp, E. E. Heikka, Maynard Dixon, E. I. Couse, Olaf Wieghorst, Henry Farny, Frank Tenney Johnson, and more. We welcome you and the over 30,000 annual visitors who come to Great Falls to immerse themselves in Russell’s West at the museum and our onsite crown jewel of the Russell legacy, the original Russell House and Studio, a National Historic Landmark.
