  • Worth the cost of admission. Thought provoking. Our docent was excellent. The figures, lighting, audio presentation were all very well done. Afterwards, you can walk around the perimeter of the room where there are framed likenesses and bios of each of the signers. Allow yourself to reflect upon the true meaning of Liberty and all we owe these Founding Fathers, many of whom lost their fortunes and family members in the cause for Freedom.
  • We need one of these in every capital of the country in our opinion! Truly amazing place to visit while in South Dakota. The employees wear costumes appropriate for the time period and were extremely knowledgeable. Also, shooting a 50 cal Flintlock is a great experience so don't miss that!
  • This was a fun, informational experience. Loved learning about the history of the Declaration of Independence and those of the men who signed it! Great experience for people of all ages! Kids admission is free! Older folks can test their skills with a Musket!
  • Looking for something to do to pass the time while waiting to check in to the hotel. Wasn't sure what to expect, but we definitely got more... Very interesting and informative. Well worth the money.
  • I thought it was a great history reminder. It looked so real. They did a really good job making all the clothes that the men are wearing. I took my 7 year old Granddaughter. She liked to look at it all. But that's about it. I pray she learns it all in school. I would have gave it 5 stars if they can figure out a way to teach the kids that young. But it's hard at that age. If you want to be refreshed on history and see some wonderful art work as in the figures of the men and the clothes please go. beautiful.
