Legend has it that sightings of “Nessie,” the Flathead Lake version of it’s own “monster,” goes back to the earliest days of human habitation in the area.
‘Monster’ sightings still occur each year as area residents and visitors spot mystery creatures on the lake surface.
See our “Big Fish,” the 7 1/2 foot, 181 lbs. sturgeon caught from Flathead Lake in 1955 and learn the details of the capture. “Nessie” may (or may not, some say) be the monster of the legends!
Local Author, the late Paul Fugleberg, has written his diary highlighting Nessie sightings in Flathead Lake for the last 50 years. The diary can be viewed at the museum.
On May 3, 2018 our Flathead Lake Monster and museum will be featured on The Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the Museum” program….watch for it!
