Build. Dance. Climb. Sing. Paint. Play. Learn. Discover. Imagine!

Fun and lasting memories await your family. Cruise down to KidStreet! Tune up the car before heading to the gym, put together some sandwiches and brew espresso and steam up a latte at the local cafe, make music, or produce your own play or newscast live at the studio. Open the door to adventure on the 1.5 acre Prairie! Climb hills and logs, weave through a willow tunnel, wade in a stream, build a dam, wander the prairie grass maze, and dig for dinosaur bones. Be careful not to wake up Mama and her baby boy Max, the only full size, permanent, animatronic T. rex in the United States.

  • Lots of interactive things to do both indoors and out. Grandkids especially liked the grocery store and water works.  more »
  • Had a great time at the childrens museum with my grandson and granddaughter. Alot to do there and totally worth the price.  more »
  • Very clean, very friendly staff, lots of options for the kids and endless amount of fun for them. The outside play area was nice on a cooler day and inside was room after room of a different learning opportunity. Overall my kids loved the place and would visit again when in South Dakota again.
  • We had a lot of fun. There were a lot of options and it's good to have options. Place was nice and clean, and the staff was excellent. It was busy but it didn't matter because there was so many different things to do and lots of room. Bottlenecks were minimal.
