    This little gem is an excellent way to kill some time with the kids and not break the bank! For the most part it is free! From time to time, other exhibits and activities are offered for a very small fee. A great activity for families and guests visiting from out of town.

    Great place for all ages. Coffee shop, stop in for lunch. Always good special events. Can't go wrong when learning and fun go hand in hand!

    Well set up, lots of information about the creation and growth of North Dakota through many different eras. I appreciate the set up and the displays and definitely recommend this location. Cost is Free and open Monday through Sunday closed New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
