Overview

Charlie Russell documented the West that was vanishing before his eyes, telling the story of the American West as no artist had before. Many of the stories Russell told through Russell's art and life resonate even today. The first museum dedicated to Western art, the C.M. Russell Museum houses Charles Marion Russell's original studio, the home where he lived, and many paintings and bronzes created by Russell and his contemporaries. It also includes a compelling exhibition of Browning Firearms, featuring information on John Moses Browning (1855-1926), one of the world's most important and innovative gun makers. Now allowing photography except for specific pieces (no flash photography). Find out why the C.M. Russell Museum is the art and soul of the American West.

CM Russell is one of our favorite Western artists. This museum has excellent examples of his work and it tells about the man who created such great paintings and sculptures.

This is one of the two great sights to make a stop, at in Great Falls. It is a must see for fans of Russell, western art and western history. Well laid out and worth the visit.

It was such an honor to stand in Charlie Russell's actual studio. Absolutely chilling, especially after standing in front of his magnificent art inside the museum. The Native American artifacts and works by other artists enhance the whole experience.

Fantastic museum dedicated to a great artist. He wasn't born in Montana, but he sure captured the spirit of the late 1800's. This museum is a must see.

Somewhat off the beaten path in Great Falls but easy to find. A must see for C.M. Russell fans. Several noted paintings and bronze sculptures. Russell's log cabin studio was the highlight of our visit.

This is an excellent Western Art Museum. A treasure for Montana. A needed asset for Great Falls. Fans of Russell will really enjoy this. Kids will appreciate it more if they know something about him before you come...in fact they surprised us by their enthusiasm....More
