Upcoming and Past Events
Wednesday Evening Programs
Old Trail Museum will continue to provide Wednesday evening programs throughout the summer months. We have not confirmed our program dates and the presenters for the 2019 season . Please watch the Choteau Acantha for further details.
Our day camp program continues in 2019.
Old Trail Museum will be providing a one week day camp for children entering 1st grade through 5th grade this summer.
The camp dates have not been set. Dates will be placed in the Choteau Acantha.
Classes are limited to 12 children per week. The camp will be hands-on, so children need to wear shoes suitable for nature hikes and clothes that can get messy. There will be guest speakers, crafts, nature trips, snacks and lots of fun for any one attending.
Cost is $70.00 per child per week and goes from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.
Child will need to provide their own lunch every day except Friday. Call 466-5332 or 899-6000 to register your child.
Wild Game Feed
We are very excited about our Wild Game Feed Potluck that will be held on March 23, 2019. The event will be held in the Rocky Mountain Convention Center at the Stage Stop Inn in Choteau beginning at 5:30 pm. This event will include a no host bar, potluck, silent auction and live auction. The potluck features wild game prepared by some participants but is not limited to just wild game. People are encouraged to bring all kinds of non-wild dishes too. We hope to have a wonderful turnout for this event. With the Potluck being held in the convention center we will have so much more room to enjoy the meal and to view the auction items.
Interpretive Tours of the Old North Trail
Two interpretive tours of the Old North Trail will be offered this summer. These tours will be led by Anne Dellwo, Dave and V.V. Shea and David Hartman. The dates have been set for July 13, 2019 for the North Tour and July 20, 2019 for the South Tour. Times and dates will also be published in the Great Falls Tribune Hot Ticket and the Choteau Acantha closer to the time of events. If you have not had the opportunity to go on one of these tours now is the time to sign up. These tours are so informative and brings you back to the late 1800's and early 1900's and how our pioneers lived and where they lived. There are many artifacts still there. Sign up sheets will be available at the Museum after it opens in May.
We have a new look to the School House. It has been painted, carpets have been cleaned, we put up new curtains and took many photos out of the archives and hung them on the walls. It looks so nice. The Old Trail Museum board wants to let the public know that the Schoolhouse at the museum is available for a minimal rental fee. This is a great place to hold small parties, meetings and other events as there is a full kitchen, bathroom, meeting room and a deck and large lawn area in the back. Contact the museum at 406-466-5332 if you are interested in renting the building.
New Dinoaaur Bone
Amazing Toys in Great Falls closed their business and in this store was a scapula bone from a Capatopsian Dinosaur. Anyone interested in the bone needed to write up a request letter and the owners Dave and Diana Campbell would determine who received it. Old Trail Museum was the recipient of the donated bone. So come see our new display. We thank Dave and Diana very much for this new (old) bone.
