Children’s Museum
The Children’s Museum of South Dakota, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, opened its doors and welcomed visitors September 12th, 2010. It boasts 21,000 square feet of interactive indoor exhibits and programming as well as 1.5 acre outdoors exhibit space. The museum was created on 4-acres of land in a 38,000 square foot elementary school, originally built in 1936, on the edge of downtown Brookings and in the heart of the Brookings Historic District. Renovations began on the building in fall 2008 to bring the building back to its original state. The Children’s Museum of South Dakota is the first broad-based, cross-discipline children’s museum in the state of South Dakota. The purpose of the Children’s Museum of South Dakota is to promote learning for children of all ages and abilities through interactive, hands-on exhibits and demonstrations. The museum is a welcoming, lively, and entertaining environment that sparks learning through imagination, creativity, and discovery, a place where children and adults learn through play.
