The Montana visitor's center/museum offered some spectacular things. This carriage, a Surrey, was restored in 2009 by Mervyn "Merv" Peterson. It took him almost two years. The work he did is incredible--in the before pictures the carriage was nothing but peeling wood and half-leather seats. You can see what it looks like today in the picture above.
The museum also had a very nice camera collection and history about Montana photographers. This little tiny camera came out so long ago! I wonder how much film it could hold...
It had lava-type rocks around the gardens in the front. I love these rocks.
