Although many may not realize it, Missoula’s scenic beauty has actually helped shape its culture. The majestic mountains and forests that surround this community, as well as the three rivers that converge within it, have inspired countless artisans to honor the area’s unique setting and scenic surrounds.
The most culturally-diverse community in Montana, Missoula is home to hundreds of artists, actors, musicians, and writers, and plays host to the many who visit here each year.
Today, you can experience all that the Garden City has to offer at local art galleries, museums, music venues, riverfront parks, and historic theaters. With so many attractions and offerings, it’s no wonder Missoula is ranked 37th in the nation by Norman Crampton in The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America.
