10 BEST THINGS TO DO IN HELENA MONTANA WITH KIDS
Montana is known best for being home to both Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
I am a firm believer that families should visit both parks!
Montana WILD Complex
The complex is one of the best free things to do in Helena MT. Kids will learn about Montana wildlife while viewing native animals, completing scavenger hunts, and participating in hands-on activities.
Last Chance Tour Train
The Last Chance Tour Train is an entertaining, narrated tour on a faux train that takes you through the historic parts of this capital city. Giving interesting insight into the rich history of this gold mining town of the old west, guests are sure to enjoy.
Capitol Building Tours
The building features a massive rotunda that showcases intricate artwork, and a large and priceless Charlie Russell cowboy painting hangs in the House of Representatives.
The Gates of the Mountains Boat Tour
This 2 hour boat ride down the Missouri River traces the same route that Lewis & Clark took through the area over 200 years ago. With limestone cliffs towering 1200 feet on either side of the river, and the illusion that the river simply dead-ended into the cliffs.
Blue Jewel Mine
One of our favorite outdoor activities in southwest Montana is sapphire mining! Yes, you can find your own, and kids tend to be even better at ferreting out the blue-hued beauties than adults!
