Where are we going today?

The Copper Village Museum and Arts Center, was founded in 1971, in the hopes that the arts could help to heal the divisions of a 9 month strike between the Anaconda Company and it's workers. With strong support from it's community, the center has flourished ever since. As a not-for-profit organization the Center provides many programs and services. In 1985, the Copper Village Board and Tri-County Historical Society undertook the preservation project to save and renovate Anaconda's abandoned City Hall. This is where the Museum and Art Center is now located. Our location is the corner of Commercial and Cedar Streets. Exhibits in the Engine House Gallery feature local and traditional arts. Contemporary artists from Montana as well as national exhibits are displayed. The gallery hosts 5 to 6 different exhibits during the year. Two of these exhibits feature the art work of the local schools, a primary section and a middle school /high school section. One special exhibit each year features local quilts.

    Great day out, loads to do and regular special events too. My children love it and always find something new to see and do. The train ride is a particular highlight but they love the electricity and communications halls too, and the buses and fire engines. They've done printing in the print shop and activities on event days. We know we'll always have a good time there even if it's pouring with rain (last time I suggested not going because of the weather I was informed that we all had coats so we could wear them).

    Excellent Heritage Museum and if you like steam you must visit.
    Open Air Museum with traditional crafts, Museum of Electricity and Telephones, Old Buses and a lot more for everyone. It has lots to see and do.
    There is a free old bus and miniature steam train that will take you around the park.
    We'll be back.
