How We Got Here

The Yellowstone County Museum is celebrating 65 years of conserving and preserving history with the fundraiser event How We Got Here. The event takes place from September 6-7 and will feature a variety of early transportation and classic vehicles. September 6th is a private event for our sponsors from 5:30pm-10pm. and the 7th is open to the public from 11am-3pm.

Sixty-five years is a big deal and the YCM is going big to commemorate decades of preserving the history, artifacts, and culture of the Yellowstone River Basin. The How We Got Here exhibit and gala celebration takes place in and around a hangar at Edward’s Jet Center. The celebration promotes our diverse history and culture so that future generations will understand and appreciate the legacy of our pioneering ancestors.

Proceeds benefit the YCM’s education outreach program which provides children and youth with historical perspectives and an appreciation of the importance to save the knowledge and wisdom of our past.

Individual tickets to the private event on Friday are available for $75. There are many event activities and sponsorship levels. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please contact us at (406) 256-6811.
