Huntley Project Museum of Irrigated Agriculture

The Huntley Project is a success story of hard work and perseverance. In the early 1900's the US government worked out deals to help people settle in certain areas. One of these areas was along the Yellowstone River northeast of Billings Montana. In 1907 the Huntley Irrigation Project was started. Our grounds are serene and peaceful. Large trees, wildlife and flowing water in the summer creates a relaxing atmosphere for photography, painting, yoga, quiet contemplation or taking a relaxing walk among our historic buildings. For those who love history, interesting facts or genealogy we are a treasure trove of artifacts and information.

Neil gave us the tour of the Huntley Project Museum. We started outside with Neil speaking about the different farm implements used when Montana was just in its infancy. It is amazing what these pioneers did and HOW they made the irrigation canals that brought water to the region. If you like history or if you like farming history - this is the place to see. We didn't have enough time inside the museum but we were on a schedule. Thanks for the refreshements - they were a welcomed treat!

We had a wonderful time on our two hour ride. Theresa is super friendly and competent, the horses were well behaved and knew their role, and the landscape and vistas of the 7,000 acre ranch were amazing! It is very close to downtown Billings as well, so no long drive to reach it. Online booking worked well.

Living in and around Billings I was surprised to hear that there was a zipline, with family coming to town we decided to take advantage of this adventure and our expectations were well surpassed. The tour took around 3 1/2 hours, the guides were engaging and professional. We all had a blast joking around and having fun with our guides but they also took the job very seriously and safety was their first priority. The ziplines were exhilarating and we really couldn't have asked for a better time. I HIGHLY recommend the tour, our group ranged in age from 10 yrs to 60 yrs. We cannot wait to go again!!
