    An unexpected surprise!
    Excellent glimpse on local history and culture. This is a small museum (of the kind big-city snobs call "provincial") which gives a good understanding of the region and its history. I found the wheat exhibit informative and the part of using the sacks - charming and a simple lesson in recycling. The Kalispel exhibit, while romanticizing "the good old days," was interesting and gave much pause for thought The DreamWorks exhibit was an added bonus Campbell House was a wonderful surprise. Dani gave an excellent tour of this family dwelling and it's history, and the interactive exhibit in the carriage house is fascinating

    Very nice museum I would visit if it had exhibits on of interest
    We visited during their exhibit on DreamWorks Animation. The museum is not very large, but exhibits were all very well done. In addition to the major exhibit, they had smaller exhibits on Native American canoes, and on historic flour sacks (far more interesting than it sounds!).
