  • I mean, it's a photo op. Nice and nothing wrong with that. The museum right here made it really worth the stop and was very kid friendly.

  • This monument is well curated. Very interesting artifacts, that are well taken care of and come from many local families. The museum includes artifacts from many aspects of early rural life throughout the history of the area. Information is well put together an understandable for a wide age range. The gift shop has many unique items if you are looking for gifts to bring home. The outdoor monument for the center of the nation makes for good photographs and a small flag park of the nation's states. An enjoyable way to stretch your legs on a long road trip. I recommend visiting this location.
  • A beautiful museum, small gift shop, restored cabin, manicured grounds with walking paths and of course the granite marker which shows the exact center of the United States including Hawaii and Alaska. So peaceful and meaningful. A must see for anyone traveling anywhere near Belle Fouche SD.
