So what museum came in ranked #13 on the list? Well for long time residents of Great Falls it might be pretty obvious.


That right, its the C.M. Russell Museum. It makes sense as Charlie Russell is one of Great Falls most famous residents plus one of the most famous "Cowboy Artists."  Planetware.com had this to say about why visitors should visit,

A highlight is a chance to visit the original Russell House and Studio, now designated a National Historic Landmark. Also of interest is the museum's Russell Riders Sculpture Garden with its statues of area wildlife.

They go on to say Great Falls has plenty of other offerings to tourists such as Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and The Rivers Edge Trail.  All in all it's nice to see Great Falls making the list as a top place to visit when vacationing in Montana.
