Letters from Visitors:

"Dear Montana Museum of Art & Culture, I want to tell you that I have been in a lot of museums and I have never seen a museum like that. I think that what you are doing is amazing and don't stop!"
6th Grader, Lolo School  
"Does an art museum teach us about the exhibits, or does it make us feel like we want to be a part of it? The Montana Museum of Art and Culture doesn’t just teach you about exhibits like any other museum would, this museum makes you feel like you are a part of it…"
Colton Browder, UM Student
