Museum preps for video play

Thanks to Discover Kalispell, the Northwest Montana History Museum along with the Hockaday Museum of Art and the Conrad Mansion Museum soon will be featured in a promotional video.

Above, Diane Medler, the director of the Kalispell chamber’s convention and visitor bureau, readies for the interview portions of the video.

The museum’s bar and backbar from the 1880s, which served its time in various fine drinking establishments from Virginia City to Demersville and Kalispell, moved to the museum in 1998. It had to be lifted through a second-story window to take its place in Hollensteiner-Stahl Hall, one of our exhibit and rental rooms, where it still serves its traditional purpose.

Medler specifically requested the handsome, historic backdrop for the video shoot, and we loved polishing it up for its star turn!
