Posted April 14, 2017

The Ravalli County Museum has received a grant from the Montana History Foundation to help preserve and protect the historic legacy of Montana represented in its collections.

“We really love that foundation because it really gets right to the core of what the museum is all about, and that is preserving history,” said Tamar Stanley, museum director. “They understand what small museums struggle with.

“We wrote the grant for the care of the museum’s collection. The goal is to embrace 21st Century museum best practices while providing a collection more accessible to the public.”

Stanley said the funding will help with proper storage for the current collection and provide archival storage for newly acquired collections.
