  • Don’t miss the Indian village if you have an interest in history or archeology. Nicely presented and a unique opportunity to see an actual dig.  more »
  • Was so excited to go there (after Corn Palace) but as soon as we pulled in, it started raining! Bummer! The gentleman that was working was very knowledgeable & friendly...explaining all about the dig & other things available there. We will surely head back to Mitchell & return.
  • We saw this in the 70's when it was little more than a few holes in the ground. It has evolved into a great way for people to learn about the indigenous cultures around here as they would have lived in 1000 AD. The Archaeodome has a combination of hands on and media to engage a variety of ages. The lodge house was worth a look. And yes there is a gift shop, lots of items from toys to art to candy, made for about every budget and many tastes.
