The Museum of the Northern Great Plains is the official museum for agriculture for the State of Montana. It tells the story of three generations of farmers from 1908 until 1980. It is about their lives, their culture and their work. The museum has 30,000 square feet of exhibition space and a village of businesses from the homestead era of the 1920s. The facility contains a research library and archives with meeting rooms and facilities from programs, seminars and workshops. Also in the four-acre site is an outside exhibit of unique farm machinery from the early farming era.

Directions: Entering Fort Benton from US Highway 87, proceed down St. Charles Street to 20th Street. The museum is across the street from the high school football field on the corner of 20th and Washington.
