|Facility:||Museum of Women's History|
|Description:||The Museum is open to everyone and the exhibits proudly reflect the lives of women everywhere -- not just Montana. It is a museum of all ages, for all ages. Exhibits feature women from all walks of life, all professions, all ethnic groups and perspectives locally and internationally.
Exhibits are grouped by historical era, from the Victorian period to the present. As you walk through the Museum, you will see exhibits ranging from an old-fashioned iron to a display of a woman representing the "Burning Bra Protest." The Museum is filled with different collections representing women's lives. There is a collection of dresses including a gown dating back as early as 1870, an evening dress worn in the era of Congresswoman Jeannette Rankin (The 1st woman elected to Congress), a World War II bride's dress, and a flapper's party attire. Along with the dress collection, there are other artifacts representing women's lives, such as a hat collection and a doll collection.
