The Polson-Flathead LakeMuseum was established by J.F. ‘Fay’ McAlear in the early 1970s and focuses on the Pioneers, Homesteaders and Native Americans who inhabited the region, the only museum like it in the area.
It is also the home of the FLATHEAD LAKE MONSTER!
‘Monster’ sightings still occur each year as area residents and visitors spot mystery creatures on the lake surface.
See our “Big Fish,” the 7 1/2 foot, 181 lbs. sturgeon caught from Flathead Lake in 1955 and learn the details of the capture. “Nessie” may (or may not, some say) be the monster of the legends!
Visit our charming and educational museum to see firsthand examples of early Homesteaders efforts to survive, even thrive, in a challenging environment.
The museum also boasts a pioneer home interior from the 1910 homestead era,’ a real-life example of how the pioneer family lived, cooked, preserved food and washed clothes with very few labor saving devices such as we know today.
