The Yellowstone Art Museum is the largest museum in the region and includes paintings and sculptures both historic and contemporary, with an emphasis on art and artifacts of the Northwest. The YAM was born in 1964 out of the old Yellowstone county prison, and the much-expanded museum now includes the prison as an exhibit.
