The MCHF & WHC exists to fulfill a public benefit. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation we work to fulfill our Mission and Vision to bring awareness to our cultural heritage.

We are guided by a simple principle: that our management of the MCHF & WHC must always exceed the public trust expectations that our important Mission and Visions demand. We have adopted the standards for accredited museums as issued by the American Museums Association and the American Association of State and Local History. 

We accomplish nothing if our leadership fails to bring honor to our cultural heritage. This way of life and the values that exemplify it must always be a viable and credible option for future generations to choose to adopt for themselves. 

The MCHF & WHC is a member of the Montana Nonprofit Association, Museums Association of Montana (MAM), and American Association for State and Local History (AASLH)
