  • I was stuck in a layover and noticed the airport had fossils. Normally airports have things from nearby museums to help show what the town has so my family and I decided to go here while we waited. We were all so happy with how CLEAN the place was and how KIND the staff was! It is a medium sized museum but it has A LOT TO OFFER! For my 4 hours in North Dakota, this museum made me want to see what else the state has!
  • Somewhat small for a history museum, but worth checking out if you're staying in Bismarck. When we went they had several exhibits; Horses, Early People, Underwater World, and a few others. The under water one was my favorite, they had a few really cool fossils of giant water dwelling animals that surprised me.
