Discover the Finest Museum Bookstore in Montana

About the Bookstore

For two decades, the Northwest Montana History Museum has been home to one of the best-kept secrets in the Flathead Valley: School Bell Books & Gifts.

Thanks to the hard work of many and the generous contributions of key supporters, the bookstore can now become a less-kept secret.

Visitors to Glacier National Park and locals alike can spend a relaxing and informative afternoon in the museum’s bookstore.

Check out our curated selection of fiction and nonfiction books that highlight Montana’s rich history. We also offer many Montana wares not found anywhere else.
