Experience Montana history for free February 28-29 as the Montana Historical Society waives its admission fee during the two-day Leap of Kindness celebration.

Be one of the first to experience the new “Good Beer Here” exhibit, which traces the path of Montana’s complicated yet longtime love affair with brewing beer. The exhibit walks visitors through the earliest brewing years, through prohibition, and the most recent explosion of microbrewing in Montana. It also explores the synergies between beer and agriculture as Montana rose to become an industry leader in barley productions.

Visitors also can view some of the best artwork by Montana’s own Charlie Russell, then take a leap into our other exhibits that detail all aspects of the Treasure State’s rich and diverse history. And don’t miss the hands-on gallery for the young and the young at heart, to learn more about the historic role of horses and traditional toys.

The Original Governor’s Mansion at 304 No. Ewing St. in Helena also will waive its entry fees on the two days.

The Leap of Kindness Day is being promoted by the Helena Area Chamber of Commerce as a way for organizations to do something kind for others. The chamber will track and share the acts using the hashtag #HelenaLeaps.

People in the West have long relied on the kindness of strangers, and we’re thrilled to carry on that tradition today and into the future. Please take a moment to enjoy, engage, explore, visit and leap into our collective heritage February 28-29. You have the gift of an extra day this year. Make the most of it!
