The Museum at Central School serves the entire Flathead Valley as an education center for North West Montana history. There are extensive rooms dedicated to Native American, logging and farming history as well as rotating displays for past and present concerns. A wonderful 1895 classroom re-enactment experience is invaluable for local 3rd graders. Many opportunities for volunteers and visitors are available for anyone who wishes to understand this beautiful part of Montana.

The Northwest Montana Historical Society is a thriving organization with over 800 members. They are based in the Museum at Central School, which is home to the Flathead Valley history museum. They played a critical role in keeping the building from being torn down and to this day help keep it running in tip top shape.
