Join the Northwest Montana History Museum for a high-quality walking tour of downtown Kalispell, the cultural, economic, and transportation hub of the Flathead Valley. The approximate 2-hour, level, and ADA-accessible tour covers about one mile and makes more than two dozen stops amid 30-plus highlighted buildings that tell the story of Kalispell's evolution and people.
Along the way walkers learn about architectural history and modern reuse as well as prominent citizens and early settlers, how a bison herd could buy a city block, and where to spot ghost signs.
All walks begin and end at the Northwest Montana History Museum, 124 Second Ave. East, Kalispell, MT 59901; 406-756-8381; nwmthistory.org.
Recommended for ages 10 and over.
Please visit nwmthistory.org/programs/downtown-kalispell-walking-tour/ for ticket and walk policies. Online ticket sales end a half-hour before the walk begins.
A signed waiver is required to participate in the tour, provided on-site.
Museum admission is included with a ticket to the walking tour. Note: The Friday tour ends after the museum closes for the day so if walkers want to see the museum on the same day as the tour, they are advised to come earlier in the day.
We look forward to walking with you!
