We visited the Old Trail Museum in Choteau, Montana, in August, 2011. This quaint museum is part of a small tourist area filled with old frontier homes on the road to Glacier National Park. This part of Montana is known for dinosaur fossils, and the Old Trail Museum goes over this history.

They also have quite a bit of information on local history, and some pretty cool artifacts, including the skeletal remains of a man who was shot four times by a bow and arrow...the arrows are still imbedded in the skeleton!

The museum runs strictly on donations, and they will let you know as you enter, so make sure you have some cash on you. The other buildings house gift shops, a display about grizzly bears, a frontier home to tour, and an ice cream parlor. Make sure you stop by to get some ice cream! Its very inexpensive, and they give you a lot! (Trust me, you only need one scoop). My favorite flavor is Montana Huckleberry.

There's also a public swimming pool and good places to eat in the small town of Choteau. In addition, David Letterman has a home in the area, and is known to frequent locations in town.
