The Heritage Museum - Libby

The Heritage Museum features a 12-sided log structure 130 feet in diameter, built in the 1970s almost exclusively by unpaid volunteers and financed by donations. The museum has no paid employees. Its exhibits portray the various peoples who lived in the Libby area during the late nineteenth and early 20th centuries: Kootenai Indians, trappers, miners, loggers and settlers.

On display are a small house furnished in turn-of-the-century style; exhibits by the Forest Service, mining interests, and the lumber industry; and animal exhibits, including bears, a wolf and numerous birds.

Also on the grounds are a renovated and furnished miner's cabin; the cookhouse from the early 1900s Sylvanite ranger station; a blacksmith shop; Shay locomotive 1643, which was used by the J. Neils Lumber Co.; and mining, logging and farming machinery.

Admission is by donation.
