National Museum of Forest Service History

Add to itinerary
From the time the Forest Reserves were set aside in 1891, our nation's forests and range lands have had a rich, colorful history. The National Museum of Forest Service History (NMFSH) seeks to construct a facility that will capture and interpret this history for future generations. The future home of the museum will be Missoula, Montana, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and home to the Forest Service Northern Region Headquarters. It is planned that the US Forest Service will provide most of the archives and artifacts that will make up the bulk of the collection. Financing for construction and operation of the museum will come from a mixture of private, local, state, and federal government sources. The museum will be both national class and national scope - comparable to the Smithsonian Institution. The entire rich, national history of the Forest Service, including Forestry Research, Cooperative Forestry, International Forestry, and the National Forest System will be presented.
