Join us for the 28th annual SpringFest, sponsored by Rocky Mountain Bank, on June 4, 2016 at the Moss Mansion. This juried art festival features regional artists and their original handiwork for sale, antique booths, musical entertainment and a wide variety of refreshments for every taste. The day begins with a pancake breakfast and as the sun powers up so does the fun! Shop and mingle among the booths and the gardens in the shade of the trees on the lovely grounds of the Moss Mansion.
In addition to hands-on activities for kids, there are also artist demonstrations and lively musical acts to enjoy throughout the day. The mansion is also open all day at regular tour prices. Click here to see our event calendar for more information.
The Billings Preservation Society turns 30!
For 30 years, the Billings Preservation Society has worked to restore and preserve the 113-year-old Moss Mansion, celebrating the historic and cultural significance of this Billings landmark. Through the determined efforts of its small staff and generous contributions from committed directors and volunteers, the society has inspired the community to support preservation maintenance and major improvements at the mansion.
Visit us this year and learn more than ever about the Moss family and the history of Billings!
Each year, after the intensity of Halloween and Christmas schedules, we must give the house a well-deserved rest. Last year we estimate over 17,000 guests came to visit. Like any good host, she needs to run a hot bath and rejuvenate some tired muscles. She’ll reflect on wonderful memories and start planning the next party!
We realize this closure may cause some inconvenience for travelers stopping by to see our beautiful museum. We apologize for that, and hope you understand that this is the best time of year to do the deep cleaning and messy maintenance.
This year we will be celebrating 30 years of Moss Mansion Museum. Please come as often as you can to this like-new 113 year old home to see special exhibits and follow our internet presence for interviews and fresh insights into the family, the home, and the collection of items that tell us such interesting things about lifestyles, business, architecture, technology, and the art of preservation.
