School Tours – Culture for Kids
What better way to learn how Billings started as a thriving community than through one of its founding families? At the Moss Mansion, children of all ages explore the 100-year-old Moss family home with its original furnishings and artwork. Kids identify with the family members and see that they lived much like we do today, but with a different set of amenities…cutting edge in the early 1900’s! Each year over 1,500 children interact with knowledgeable volunteers in guided school tours. Whether they visit the mansion during the holidays to view the elaborately decorated Christmas trees or attend a special event like the Haunted House or SpringFest, the experience is fun and educational. Reservations are required and special rates apply – please call 406-256-5100.
