Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Great Falls, a small city on the banks of the Missouri River and home to Malmstrom Air Force Base. Soon you'll be following in the footsteps of legendary pathfinders Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and admiring iconic Western scenes depicted by Charles M. Russell.
The outstanding Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center is situated on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. In 1805 the Corps of Discovery made a grueling month-long portage around the waterway's towering falls near this site. The spirit of the expedition comes to life in vivid exhibits recreating key events as the explorers pushed westward from St. Louis to the Pacific. The museum waives the admission fee for kids age 15 and under, making this a good value for families staying at our Great Falls hotels. The C.M. Russell Museum near our hotels in Great Falls celebrates the art of Great Falls native Charles M. Russell, whose enduring images of solitary cowboys riding across grassy prairies and Indians hunting woolly buffalo continue to define the Old West. The museum is home to the world's largest collection of Russell paintings and sculptures.
Search for vintage finds in the numerous antiques stores scattered throughout the city, including several shops downtown near our Great Falls hotels.
