Firearms Collection at Russell Museum

Several years ago the Browning Firearms Collection was tucked away in the basement in a far corner of the C. M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, MT. Now it’s one of the first installations you see after you leave the reception desk in the lobby. The other day I had a chance to visit and marvel at the display one more time.

The firearms collection is part of the Russell’s permanent collection and I really like how the display has been done. Rifles, shotguns and pistols are all included.

John Moses Browning has been noted as innovative in his firearms designs. He was a prolific American designer and held 128 gun patents.

The Browning collection at the Russell Museum is well worth the visit. Oh yes, there’s also some pretty amazing Russell artwork there too!
