  • School until 1982 Museum now, it would take a day to see everything so these three floors are filled with objects the more various. We don't know more where to focus the eyes. Everything is well listed by rooms and types of exhibitions. In my opinion, this museum is one of the most complete in the West. In addition, could not be more friendly and the guardian does not hesitate to go out to show us the emergency evacuation slide when the school was still open.

  • Interesting and entertaining Probably needs more community donations to embelish their exibits, but overall good fun.
  • Very interesting historical slice of a neat place
  • Awesome history and the person at the information desk knew so much and was a joy to visit with!
  • This is a very clean well kept local museum. Been there more than once. Items arranged well. Building itself is worth the stop. Located very close to Wind Cave National Park.
  • Loved this place,need to go ago
