  • Great interactive museum suited for both kids and adults. $10 admission priced seems high but after experiencing the museum I would say the price is worth it. The ear buds provided didn't really seem necessary except for one of the places the rest mainly just provided music for the short video clips. Kids activities may have used the ear buds more. The video viewing rooms were a great touch such as hearing Indian history while standing in a teepee and gazing into the fire pit. Highly recommend this stop!
  • Great place to visit. And there's a lot of things in area to do and see on your way to yellow stone on the way back !!
  • Great museum! Highly recommended!
  • Well put together. The educational potential is vast. Well worth the price of admission.
  • Amazing.
