  2. In summer 2022, Bozeman’s Museum of the Rockies will be the second museum in the world to host “Apsaalooke Women and Warriors,” an exhibit showcasing the prominence of women, daring feats in battle, unparalleled horsemanship and innovative beadwork.
  3. Bannack Days (July 16-17, 2022): See re-enactments of mining days and demonstrations of pioneer skills, try gold panning, explore Hangman’s Gulch or even see a gunfight, all at Bannack State Park.
  4. Montana Dinner Yurt: Discover an out-of-the-ordinary winter dining experience with amazing mountain views and star-filled skies in Big Sky. A snowcat takes you to a heated yurt in a backcountry setting at 7,500 feet elevation. Enjoy a delicious dinner, live acoustic music and sledding on Lone Mountain.
  5. The elk rut in Gardiner during the fall mating season is a spectacle to be remembered. Bull elk bugle to ward off competing bulls as they gather females into harems. Other prime elk habitat includes the Bitterroot Valley south of Missoula, the Seeley Lake area and the Slippery Ann Wildlife Viewing area near Lewistown.

Learn all about the status of Native American women, daring feats in battle, unparalleled horsemanship and innovative beadwork at the “Apsaalooke Women and Warriors” exhibit at Bozeman’s Museum of the Rockies.
