What's in Missoula
Montana Natural History Center
The mission of the Montana Natural History Center is to promote and cultivate the appreciation, understanding and stewardship of nature through education. MNHC is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 by a group of educators who had the vision to create a natural history center as a resource for schools and the public. Originally housed on the University of Montana campus, MNHC continued to grow and outgrow its rented space at Fort Missoula. In 2004, MNHC purchased its first home at 120 Hickory Street, at the edge of McCormick Park in the heart of Missoula. http://www.montananaturalist.org/

From Broadway musicals and poignant comedies in our beautiful home theatre, to original children’s productions on gym floors and auditoriums around the world, MCT performances have delighted and amazed audiences for nearly four decades. But MCT is really in the business of using an entertainment format to foster enrichment and education in children—of all ages.
