Share in the Homestead Heritage of the Mission Valley and Flathead Lake area as it is preserved in the Polson-Flathead Historical Museum. Other area museums focus on the Native American presence in the region, but our museum focuses on the pioneers and homesteaders who first inhabited the region. See the development of the area progress over the years through viewing real-life exhibits such as..The Trading Post, actually see what it was really like to shop in the only store in the region in the 1880's! The Flathead "Monster"! Marvel at the stagecoaches and buggies that carried passengers to, through and from the Valley!

Old time Fire Trucks! Stand in the middle of a true-to-life kitchen from the 'good old days' and imagine what it was like to cook a meal, wash clothes or preserve food with few labor saving devices! These are examples of just a few of the exhibits available at the PFHM. Our museum is a living, growing institution developed in the 1960's by the Reservation Pioneers under the guidance of J.F. "Faye" McAlear. Through the years, generous area residents, many descendants of pioneers, have contributed artifacts and other memorabilia to make the museum what it is today, a living example of early life in the Mission Valley. We're easy to find, just drive down Polson's Main Street, 4 blocks from Hwy. 93, and there we are!
