  • Think they could have made more of the items on display For example, it was too hard relating exhibit numbers to descriptions  more »
  • They did a very good job on the remodel and expansion of the Heritage Center. Very well laid out. Enjoyable to visit  more »
  • Wonderful new addition. Lots of dinosaur things including the "mummy" Dino. Nice Native American displays. Beautiful building with surprisingly good cafe and gift shop.  more »

  • 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.
  • Great new facility. You could spend all day here. Not ideal for under 2, unless they're sleeping 😉 our little guy loved the "treehouse " kids area and the tractor simulator, but wasn't a big fan of much else.
  • Great layout. Good family experience. Glad to see Dakota the dino in Bismarck.
