GREAT FALLS — The C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls announced that it will begin re-opening over the next several days.

Beginning Thursday, June 11, the CMR Museum Store as well as the Russell House and Studio will reopen to the public; they will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the House and Studio is $7 per person for adults and seniors, and free for students and active military and their families.

On Thursday, June 25, the entire museum complex will once again be open to the public with the same hours - Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. At this time, museum admission will return to regular rates.

Of special priority is the safety of guests as well as the frontline team in the gift shop, at the front desk, security, volunteers, and anyone who supports a visiting patron. For this reason, the following policies and procedures have been implemented:

  • Parties of more than than ten people will be required to enter the museum in a staggered format. Guided tours have been suspended through September.
  • The museum will have a new gallery map and a marked pathway through the museum to ensure guests can enjoy the museum while minimizing contact with other guests.
  • Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the museum.
  • All points of sale have been outfitted with plexiglass barriers.
  • All museum staff will wear masks. Guests are encouraged but not required to wear a mask while in the museum.
