On our way to the Badlands/Black Hills we enjoyed stopping at Chamberlain to see the view of the Missouri River from the Visitor Center. Fortunately, we made time on our way back to stop at this lovely museum. The museum is a beautiful building right on the river in town. There is a friendly staff and the exhibits were very well done. For families this should be a must see on the way to other sites in South Dakota - especially for families who are trying to help their children understand the history of this area. While Mount Rushmore is a destination for many, this museum helps provide some balance. Thank you for investing your time and money in educating people about our past.
Every South Dakota school child should be required to visit here; as well as every adult! I learned SO much. Very detailed exhibits and notations on early Native American Life, culture. Lots of authentic items, donated & identified. There is a very large bookstore, souvenir shop; with something or everyone. I spent 2 1/2 hrs here. Native staff who work here are a wonderful source of current & historical information on our native Americans.
