The Wildlife Museum project began in 1991 when the Blaine Theater building was donated by Blaine Bank of Montana. Located in Chinook’s downtown business district, this one-of-a-kind facility displays many of Montana’s native wildlife species in their natural habitats.

The Wildlife Museum is a unique attraction nestled among an abundance of historical sites such as the Blaine County Museum and the Bear Paw Battlefield, located just 20 miles south of Chinook.  Our Board of Directors appreciate the tremendous amount of support from the Chinook community as well as surrounding areas, all of which have enabled us to create and maintain this incredible museum experience.

We are a non-profit organization.  The most significant fundraising event for the museum is our annual banquet and auction held every spring.  This premier event features a fantastic meal as well as opportunities to participate in live and silent auctions, raffles, and door prizes.  

The Wildlife Museum is a stunning sight, but that’s not the only reason to stop in.  The Museum is proud to feature the work of many Montana artists in our gift shop.

We look forward to your next visit to the Blaine County Wildlife Museum!
