Print Article

It must be getting near springtime as Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana has opened its doors for the 2019 season. Stop by for a sneak preview of a new ivory artwork exhibit that will be installed in its entirety later this spring. Start your St. Patrick’s weekend celebrations by stopping by the museum and gift shop on Saturday, March 16 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and enjoy some hot coffee and a bite or two of something “sweet and green.”

The museum recently acquired a substantial collection of Alaskan ivory artwork of various artists acquired over a lifetime by Hugh Magnussen and his wife, Jutta. The artwork is carved meticulously from walrus tusk, fossilized mammoth and whale bone and teeth. This collection includes a dog sled team mounted to a fossilized walrus bone.

The museum will be open its regular hours of Monday through Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 406-644-3435 to schedule group and school tours.
