  • This is a great place to spend some time when it is cold outside. The building is striking to look at, the exhibits are very well written up and informative. Loved seeing the dinosaurs. Fun day! 
  • I was impressed! I went there planning to kill an hour or two, and ended up being there for over 4 hours. There is a good variety of exhibits, and all are put together nicely. I highly recommend taking some time to check this place out.
  • It is a wonderful place to visit and I learned a lot about North Dakota history which I did not know and was not taught in my North Dakota history class when growing up. Very interesting and Incredibly well done. I highly recommend a visit to this wonderful venue
  • This number one Bismarck attraction is not to be missed. There is so much to learn and see. While some museums can be huge and overwhelming this one excels at providing you with tons of info without feeling smothered. And it's free! I'm still floored that it was free. There is something here for all ages to learn. Their staff are very kind. Don't be afraid to ask them a question or three. They are very informative. Also don't miss the gift shop. Lots of local products.
  • We love the Heritage Center. Great for kids and families! We bring all our friends and family here when they visit. The fact that this is free shows the great hospitality that ND is famous for. #PROUDTOBEBORNANDRAISED
  • I have gone to the heritage center 3-4 times and love it. Planning on taking my family that's here visiting from Oregon soon. I think they'll have a blast there. It's a fun place to visit and love visiting.
