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.

  • Outstanding children's museum!!! From the amazing exhibits, to the outdoor exhibits and the friendly staff!! I cannot believe we waited so long to check this place out!! Definitely worth the drive from Sioux falls!!
  • Wow! This museum isn't just great for kids. I think my adult sons had as much fun as their daughter/niece! This made for a totally great day! Thank you BCM!!
  • Great afternoon fun, The kids enjoyed all of the different areas you could learn about, and had fun doing it as well. We drove up from Sioux Falls, and it's definitely worth the trip. at $6 a person, it's reasonably priced as well.
  • For children from 4 to 10 (ideally 6 to 9 year olds) there is no better place in Brookings.
  • Kids always have a fun time. There is lots to do.
