MMAC Permanent Collection
Gift of Gilbert A. Millikan
MMAC is located at The University of Montana. At this time, there is not one building dedicated to the museum, and so we operate out of several locations:
Our Meloy and Paxson Galleries are located in the PARTV Center on the north end of campus near the Adams Center. Come experience our current exhibitions.
The Galleries are free and open to the public, however, we suggest a $5.00 donation to help fund our exhibitions and outreach.
The administrative offices are located in McGill Hall room 212
In addition to enjoying the nearly 11,000 piece Permanent Collection in the galleries, many works are available for viewing in UM buildings, and there are numerous outside/exterior artworks around campus. See the Campus Artwalk Map for many of the locations.

While you are here, don't forget to also visit the student-run UC Gallery, the Gallery of Visual Arts and the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
Part of the UM campus (which is tucked between mountain, river, and western Montana's most populated city), the Montana Museum of Art & Culture has many treasures. The Montana Museum of Art & Culture's Meloy and Paxson galleries are located on The University of Montana campus in the Performance Arts Radio Television Center (known as the PARTV Center) building across from the Adams Center off of E. 6th Street. The galleries are located off the main lobby. The Museum offices are located in McGill Hall 212.
