Art Vault opened its newly constructed, secure, climate-controlled facility in 2020 to provide local and regional clients an option for secure storage of precious things. Before our opening,  discerning collectors had to turn to out-of-area facilities for their secure storage needs adding to the risk, cost and complexity.


Art Vault offers the opportunity for owners to share their collections for public benefit in rural America and Montana in particular, by partnering with Relic Gallery, located within the same jewel-box building at 120 N Higgins Avenue.


Art Vault is a GRASP-certified facility, an earned designation bestowed by an independent field consultant. Art Vault represents the only facility certified as such between Chicago and Seattle.


Art Vault is trusted by accredited fine art museums, academic institutions and private collectors as the benchmark for secure storage and exhibition of beautiful art.


Art Vault is located at 120 N Higgins Avenue in the heart of historic downtown Missoula, Montana, conveniently accessed by I-90 or the Missoula airport (KMSO).

Display your Art in Montana and Save Big



Shipping your newly purchased artwork to Art Vault LLC in Missoula, Montana for exhibition in a public gallery may allow you to legally avoid state sales and usage tax.


As Montana has no sales or usage tax on such collectables, establishing Art Vault as the delivery address, even if your purchase is outside the state of Montana, can legally allow state sales tax avoidance.


State usage tax can be avoided by displaying the artwork for public benefit inside our beautiful 120 N Higgins Ave gallery building. Our specialized facility can help you securely save thousands on your artwork, artifact and jewelry purchases.
