Live History Days at Miracle of America Museum
POLSON, MT…On any given day, the exhibits in the Miracle of America Museum tell the history of America and its peoples. There’s a lot to see and learn. But during Live History Days, many exhibits come alive as skilled craftsmen show us how things were made in the “old days” while volunteers start the engines on what are usually static displays. Want to take a ride in a military vehicle? Sit in the cockpit of a jet plane? Watch as a freshly cut log becomes lumber for a house or barn? Learn how arrowheads are made? See how hot glass and the skill of a glass blower create a work of art? Now’s your chance. History will be alive during Live History Days on Saturday and Sunday, July 17 and 18.
In spite of the fire that took one building, there’s still lots to see on the Museum’s four acres where more than 40 buildings provide a glimpse into the past while providing plenty of room for families to explore. The many kid-friendly exhibits will be enhanced with chances to ride in the park train, “drive” a dragster race car or have a photo taken with a minion, an alien or inside a UFO.
The Museum is located at 36094 Memory Lane in Polson and is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm. Admission is $5 for children 2-12 and $10 for adults. Children under 2 are admitted free. Rides during Live History Days are included in the admission price, but since this is an annual fundraiser for the Museum, tips or larger cash donations are appreciated.
