Step into the Past! Listen to our working Player Piano, admire our celebration feather bonnets, sit in the desks in our Glacier School, check out the Meadows Forestry Cabin and the Holroyd steam tractor. Chat with our guest Artist in Residence, Sarah, about traditional weaving. Sarah has her own business. Find her on Facebook at The Weaving Story. We also carry a selection of her fabrics in our Rocky Museum Gift Shop.

On Museum Day, the last Saturday in May, we offer numerous special demonstrations including the Player Piano, spinning, and recreations of pioneer lifestyles and activities.
