One of the true hidden gems of Southwest Montana is the Copper Village Museum and Arts Center in Anaconda.  From its humble beginnings in 1971 as a master thesis project for a local art teacher, Sister Joann Daley, to the renovation and restoration of the historic building that now serves as its headquarters, the Copper Village Museum and Arts Center is not only a gallery for seasoned artists but a gateway to learning for those who are aspiring to perfect their respective crafts.

"Exhibitions in the Engine House Gallery feature local and traditional arts, contemporary artists from Montana, and exhibits of national and world views. Literary programs feature outstanding new, and established Montana writers. In addition, Copper Village offers technical assistance and financial services to other arts groups and individuals to help strengthen the larger arts community. " -
