  • This museum is very well done. There is a film, albeit dated, that provides a wonderful summary of Native American life. The displays are good. Plenty of hands on displays to keep the kids happy. Grea...  more »

  • Very detailed and interesting. Loved the very personal way it was grouped, including toys and what young people wore. A lot to look at, but not overwhelming. Worth the trip off the interstate, to get a feel for the history, the struggles and the complexity of the culture. Glad we made the time.
  • Great little stop with a lot of information in a small walk through rotunda. I'm glad we made the stop though we left quite sad for Native Americans. Sitting Bull was an amazing individual.
  • It was remarkable to see the artifacts and learn so much about the culture. I enjoyed how well some of the Lakota culture was explained, and how all of the interactive areas brought you in to experience the culture for yourself.
  • Very educational and eye opening. A wonderful place to visit and well worthwhile to take the time to go and visit.
  • A must have for everyone who s interested in indians... By the way you give the new generation a Chance for a better life... Greets from germany
