Here are the tour options available for the 2017
DUNGEONS & DOMES (Capacity: 35)
Come explore Helena’s rich history from the heights of the Montana State Capitol dome to the depths of the original jail cells in the Myrna Loy Center. From the Myrna, the group will continue on to the Montana Club with a tour from acclaimed Montana historian Ellen Baumler. Ellen will guide us through all six floors of Helena’s original gentleman’s club, ending with drinks in the basement event room, the Rathskellar.
FIRED UP DOWNTOWN (Capacity: 30)
Fire up your chakra in downtown Helena before the conference begins! We’ll begin at the Dancing Lotus Center in the historic Last Chance Gulch walking mall with a 30-minute introductory yoga class. After stretching out and breathing deep, our next stop will be the Painted Pot, where attendees will paint Montana-shaped ceramic pieces that will be fired and returned by the end of the conference. From here, we’ll head to the Great Northern Town Center and satisfy our taste buds with Bad Betty’s Barbecue smoked meats as well as a sampling from the newly re-branded Gulch Distillers. We will also stop in to Helena’s new printmaking studio, the Territorial Press.
BOULDER & BREW (Capacity: 30)
A great way to work out your muscles after driving to Helena. Attendees will get to experience Helena’s brand new indoor climbing facility, Stonetree Climbing Center. From introductory level routes for beginners to more technical routes for more experienced climbers looking for a challenge, this tour is open to all ability levels. Certified instructors will be present for assistance. After exploring our new climbing and bouldering center, we’ll head across the street to the newly expanded Lewis and Clark Brewing Company for a tasting and tour. Comfortable climbing clothes recommended. Climbing shoes will be provided, as well as changing rooms if needed.
GUNS & GREATNESS (Capacity: 35)
Celebrate the greatness of those who served and gave it all for our country. The Montana Military Museum displays the history of units deployed to conflicts around the world from Fort William Henry Harrison and around the state. It features impressive exhibits on the origins of the Special Forces, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and other information related to U.S. Army operations. Camp Rimini, the training ground for the famous World War II dog sled teams, is featured along with tanks, weapons, and a World War I troop railcar. After experiencing the museum, we will head over to the Full-Crew Interaction Simulation Trainer, where you will have the opportunity to experience the same training as those in the military receive.

Bitter Pill: Montana Lives Affected by Rx Abuse is scheduled to visit Bozeman from March 26, 2017 through April 7, 2017. An opening reception will be held March 27 from 6-8 pm (with refreshments) and a closing panel discussion will be held April 5 from 6-8 pm at the Library, on the second floor. The Bitter Pill is a collection of artwork donated by survivors of prescription drug addiction that touchingly expresses the struggle, loss, and extreme cost of abuse. The goal of this exhibit is to start a positive community conversation about the problem of prescription drug abuse from the perspective of those most affected. The exhibit will also feature the resources and outreach that is available in Gallatin County for individuals struggling with addiction. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem in Montana, and prescription opiate abuse has been linked to heroin use. This problem affects people of all ages, backgrounds, income brackets, and walks of life. Join us in our health outreach to bring this conversation into our community, and discover ways to help each other recover and build a better Montana.
