Yellowstone County Museum was organized in 1953 and sits atop the rims at Logan International Airport overlooking the city of Billings and the scenic Yellowstone River Valley. Entrance to the more than 5000 exhibits of area history and Native American artifacts is through a pioneer log cabin. The museum is free of charge and open 12 months of the year. It is truly a treasure chest of Montana's past and is supported by funding from Yellowstone County and private donations.

A wealthy cattleman's den, a log cabin, built in Billings in 1892. Houses a collection of items from the Yellowstone Valley. Included in the collection a 'Roundup Wagon' or 'Chuck Wagon' a sheep wagon, Native American artifacts, cowboy and western artifacts. The museum is much larger than it appears as over 5,000 square feet of display area are below the cabin floor.

Directions: Yellowstone County Museum is located across the parking lot from the main terminal building at Billings Logan International Airport. Take north 27th Street through the center of downtown Billings.
