Museum of the Plains Indians

Museum in Montana

This excellent museum housed in a bland building that looks like a 1970s-era suburban elementary school honors the culture of the Crow, Cree, Sioux, Cheyenne and above all the Blackfeet. Extensive descriptions accompany exhibits of costumes, art and craftwork. In summer skilfully adorned teepees are set up outside and you can chat with local artists working in an attached gallery.
