Celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2020, the Montana Museum of Art and Culture is home to one of the oldest and deepest art collections in the Rocky Mountain Northwest.

The MMAC came into existence in 1894, a year after the founding of the University of Montana, the state’s flagship academic institution.

Today, the MMAC is a teaching museum with a world-class collection of more than 11,000 objects, including significant historic and contemporary works of art.
