BLM’s Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center Moves to Winter Hours

FORT BENTION, Mont. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center will change from summer hours to winter hours beginning October 1, 2012.

During the winter the center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed on weekends and federal holidays. 

Summer hours of operation are from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily from Memorial Day weekend through September 30 of each year.

The Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center is located at 701 7th Street in Fort Benton, Mont. It interprets the grandeur and wonder of Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. From hands-on exhibits and special educational programs to a relaxing riverside walking trail, the facility tells about the area’s cultural and natural history.
The interpretive center is a public-private partnership between the Bureau of Land Management, the City of Fort Benton, and the River and Plains Society.
