What is the Giant Map of Montana Trunk?

The Giant Map of Montana Trunk contains a 21’ x 15’ map of the state of Montana that people can walk on (no shoes, please!), explore, and have fun with! This educational tool has endless possibilities for learning opportunities, especially in geography and map-reading, and anyone is welcome to submit a request to borrow it. The Montana State Library has TWO copies of the map trunk that we would like to share with libraries across the state for patrons to use and enjoy.

These maps were given to us back in 2019 by University of Montana's Geographic Alliance. Thank you MGA!
