Montana Law Enforcement Museum

The Montana Law Enforcement Museum is now in the 3rd full season in Philipsburg. The Museum has seen steady growth in the number of visitors over the past 2 years, and so far the 3rd season is showing more growth. Starting the 3rd season, the same time Philipsburg is celebrating its 150th birthday, is a very exciting time in Philipsburg. The Museum, in helping to celebrate the 150th Birthday, has reduced the price of all items it has for sale, and reduced the Membership fee to $20. This year the Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has donated a rifle which will be awarded on November 1st to one lucky person that purchases a membership, or just donates $20 to the Museum. The rifle is a Winchester Mod. 70 Featherweight in 264 win. mag caliber, value - $900. Thank you very much to the MSPOA Board and members for making a great donation to the Museum!

The Museum is also conducting a raffle to help raise money to establish a Law Enforcement Memorial within the Museum to honor those that have the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. The price of a raffle ticket is $10, the absolute total number of tickets to be sold is 1000, and the prizes are: 1st Prize is 4 game tickets to Notre Dame v. Miami (Ohio) on September 30th at Notre Dame, plus $1000 cash, 2nd Prize is $350 in cash, and 3rd Prize is $100 in cash. The drawing will be held on September 1st. Contact any Board Member to purchase a ticket. Tickets will be on sale at the Museum also. Dan and Sally Hollis have donated the money to pay all expenses for the raffle.

There are many exciting events happening in Philipsburg this summer. One event the Museum looks forward to is Flint Creek Valley days, July 29 and 30. On Saturday the 29th, there will be a parade, and on Sunday the 30th there will be a car show. The Museum 1954 Ford Trooper car will be in the parade and on display at the car show. Both are great events, and we invite everyone to visit Philipsburg that weekend. Last year the car show attracted over 100 cars!

The Museum Board of Directors, all volunteers, want to thank everyone that has purchased a membership, donated money, and donated items for display at the Museum. Without the great support of the visitors that donate money, and the law enforcement associations, the Museum would not be open. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Please take time to visit Philipsburg and the Museum this summer, and be sure to stop at the Sweet Palace. The owners of the Sweet Palace have been instrumental in helping the Museum in so many ways. Dale and Shirley, thank you very much!
