Here are some of Great Falls top local attractions:
C. M. Russell Museum
The artist Charles M. Russell captured the West as it transitioned from a lawless frontier to a settled region. The C. M. Russell Museum Complex in Great Falls includes not only 15 galleries, but the original Russell home and the artist's Log Cabin Studio. Highlights from the Museum's permanent collection include hundreds of Russell paintings and sculptures, a selection of illustrated Trigg family letters, and the Browning Firearms Collection. Russell's Log Cabin Studio is set up as if the artist was still working there, complete with painting gear and reference props. The Studio also contains an exhibit of cowboy and Indian artifacts from Russell's personal collection.
