  • If for no other reason this is a "must see" location in Sioux Falls simply to appreciate the architecture of this grand old building. But take the time to peruse those old corridors as well. There are many interesting, cultural and educational displays throughout the century old structure. Plus as an added bonus if you are lucky enough to be there at a time when they are being host to a free concert of various regional musicians. A schedule of that may be available through the Minnehaha County or Sioux Falls Web-site
  • Visiting the Old Courthouse Museum whisks you back in time and immerses you in life as it was. The exhibits pull back the drapes of the past to reveal in meticulous detail the trends, customs and events that shaped American life and brought us to current times. Admission is free and the staff is helpful and takes painstaking care in presenting all there is to see. Highly educational and entertaining, the OCM is time well spent for all ages.
