  • The museum was neat and interesting for myself who loves history and reading about it. But my 9 year old son struggled to stay entertained. He liked it, but I don’t feel like he got the same experience I did.
  • This is hands down the best museum in South Dakota. Lots of quality, interactive play areas for kids and the adults will be impressed by the intelligent and beautiful exhibits. It’s the kid of museum that sticks with you after you leave. My favourite was the teepee with the hologram of the Lakota elder speaking inside.
