Art Mecca: Montana doesn't have a large population, nor any large cities. Not surprisingly, it's a little thin in the art museum department. But, the Montana Museum of Art & Culture at the University of Montana has a fairly robust roster of brand-name artists in its permanent collection: Rembrandt, Millet, Picasso, Chagall, and the like.
If you are going to make "MMAC" a highlight of your visit to the Missoula area, plan carefully: It's only open noon to 3 p.m. most days, and is closed both Sundays and Mondays. Also it apparently doesn't really have a proper building of its own, and is spread out over a couple of UM buildings.
