Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art - Great Falls

There's something for everyone at Paris Gibson Square! "The Square" as we are affectionately known to area residents is located inside one of Great Falls' oldest and most beloved landmarks - the historic Paris Gibson Square. The magnificent sandstone structure was completed in 1896 and served as a public school until 1975. Re-opened in 1977 as a cultural center the building is home to a remarkable contemporary art museum with dynamic changing and permanent exhibitions. Enjoy the unique figure sculptures by a Montana original - Lee Steen, explore the changing exhibition galleries or stroll through our beautifully landscaped grounds and sculpture garden. The Square also offers a vibrant education department that includes guided tours, classes and workshops for all ages and abilities. Group tours available by appointment.

Admission is free courtesy of Farmer's Union Insurance - another Montana original!
