The Missoula Art Museum is FREE!
The museum is located at 335 N. Pattee Street in downtown Missoula, just off of Broadway. The galleries are open from 10 AM to 5 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. The museum is closed on Sunday and Monday each week.
MAM is situated on the traditional, ancestral territories of the Séliš (Salish or “Flathead”) and Qlispé (upper Kalispel or Pend d’Oreille) peoples. MAM is committed to respecting the indigenous stewards of the land it occupies. Their rich cultures are fundamental to artistic life in Montana and to the work of MAM.
Free tours are available every Saturday at 11 AM and upon request - click here for more information.
MAM serves the public by engaging audiences and artists in the exploration of contemporary art relevant to the community, state, and region.
About the Museum
The Missoula Art Museum has eight galleries, a non-lending library, a book store, and an education center. Exhibitions and work on view rotate about every two to three months, so there's almost always something new to see! The Missoula Art Park, located adjacent to the museum at the corner of Pattee and Pine Streets, features seasonal sculpture installations. MAM hosts events like artist talks and receptions, film screenings, community conversations, art classes for kids, summer camps, and more!
MAM’s mission is to show art that is relevant to our region. Exhibiting the work is not enough—we must do outreach to bring viewers to engage with work that is relevant to them, and then offer support in that engagement. Montana is home to seven tribal nations and an expansive rural population that is under-resourced. MAM offers contemporary art exhibitions in its six galleries that rotate throughout the year. MAM has one gallery that is devoted solely to showing contemporary American Indian art, and we regularly feature Native artists in other galleries. 10% of the museum's permanent collection is comprised of Contemporary American Indian art. It is part of the education mission to bring Native viewers together with Native artists so that MAM exemplifies a “home.”
The Missoula Art Museum welcomes patrons with disabilities. All public areas of the museum, including the entrance, galleries, classrooms, and the library are wheelchair accessible.
