Since 1976 Professor Samuel's has created fun times and great memories for our customers. We are proud to say that we have parents returning with their young families to recreate their childhood memories of our studio. We have a well trained, friendly staff that will create a unique souvenir using our many backgrounds and hundreds of costumes, hats, and props.

Located just a few miles from Mt. Rushmore in the old mining town of Keystone, we are on the 1880 boardwalk just doors down from the famous Ruby House Restaurant and directly across the street from the historic 1880 Train.

Be a rustic cowboy, Southern Belle, gentleman, or saloon-girl (floozie)...we have the right clothes, staff, and backgrounds to ensure you and your group of up to 35 have a great time!
