  • This was fun. A little on the touristy side but interesting... And if you are interested in louis lamour this is where he was until around age 12. Real buffalo, including 2 white buffalo. Pony rides and a stage coach rides and the world's largest buffalo to boot. The goat was fun too...
  • Interesting place. Saw an albino buffalo in the pasture. Very nice old frontier town next to the concrete buffalo named Dakota Thunder.
  • Lots of fun. Great information. Super inexpensive with very friendly and helpful staff.
  • Its a small museum with some good exhibits and information. However some of the information is hopelessly out of date. The Soviet Union ceased to exist 26 years ago but is still referred to in several information panels.
  • Good value for admission price. Short documentary gives info on bison in 1800's. Museum includes history, bronze sculptures, rifles, Native American beadwork-- all well displayed in glass enclosures. Herd including a white calf are visible from museum viewing platform or from short walk to outdoor sculpture. Parking for RV/bus is thru the Frontier Town into a dead end parking lot at the museum and VERY limited. Probably unwse for Big Rigson weekends or during summer
