HELENA – The Montana Historical Society will officially be getting a new look, as the Department of Administration decided to remodel and add a connected building to create the new Montana Heritage Center.
The corner of 6th and Roberts will be the location for the new Heritage Center. This location is at the Capitol Complex and is on existing state-owned property.
The Historical Society says by keeping the history museum adjacent to the Capitol building it will make it easier for visitors to experience both Montana’s Museum and the capital together. Bruce Whittenberg, the Director of the Historical Society, says this location will provide more parking and other options for future expansion.
“One of the reason’s this site was selected also was because it fit the Capitol Campus master plan for the 10 to 20-year time frame,” says Whittenberg.
