Renovations are over!

Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park is now open again for business with some exceptions: the gift shop will remain closed for most of February until inventory has been completely refurbished in preparation for a new Point of Sale system. However, guests can still pay for their admission into the museum in the gift shop during these preparations.

 Renovations have taken place throughout December and January, including new flooring and construction for an upcoming temporary exhibit, which will house Chief Crowfoot’s regalia (shirt and leggings), returning home from overseas.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation, as Blackfoot Crossing continues to improve its facilities and business operations.
