  • Well done Rapid City. This small museum packs a lot of history into a small building. The collection covers the history of this area from pre-historic periods to the European settlement. Well worth a ...  more »

  • Exceptional! We try and check out museums with our kids when we travel. This is one of the nicest museums we've visited; we stayed twice as long as we had planned. Hats off to the management it was evident to us that much planning and work has been put in to this place. Admission was very low and would have been with it at twice the cost.
  • A lot of educational stuff for adults if you want to know the history of South Dakota, and enough stuff to keep kids busy if you have them along too. We really liked reading about all the different types of rocks and the exhibit that displayed all the different beautiful gems was really cool. The gift shop had plenty of South Dakota related things in it but so does every other place in the area.
  • This Is a good place to take kids that are under 6 or for anyone over the age of 13. Activities for the younger kids are good. The information provided for those over 13 is very interesting. For those inbetween, not much. They are too old for the activities and too young to understand the information provided.
  • There web site does not do the museum justice. Lots of great things to see and learn about. My 6 and 14 year old had a great time.
