It’s The Fun Way To See Beautiful and Historic Helena, Montana!

Please plan to purchase tickets and board the train 30 minutes prior to your desired tour time. Reservations highly recommended.

Marvel at the Cathedral of St. Helena with its dramatic 230 foot spires (about 20 stories). Cruise by Reeder’s Alley, a charming restored miners’ village from gold rush days. See the authentic Pioneer Cabin built in 1864, one of the last remaining structures that represents Helena’s early history.

Catch a glimpse of The Old Fire Tower. Built in 1876, it’s one of the few remaining fire towers you’ll see in the United States. Enjoy the unique downtown architecture along Last Chance Gulch including buildings embellished with giant lizards, thumbprints and gargoyles.

View the Greek Renaissance architecture of Montana’s impressive State Capitol. Constructed of native Columbus sandstone and crowned with a massive copper dome, the cornerstone was laid in 1899, with construction of this impressive structure being completed and dedicated in 1902.

See the opulent mansion district, featuring the dream homes of Helena’s mining millionaires. Roll right by our Governor’s homes, old and new. You’ll see the Victorian beauty that served as the home of Montana’s governors from 1913 to 1959, as well as the newer home that is the current chief executive’s abode.
