  • Great time. The site was covered and very interesting. There was a docent in the building that talked to us about what was being uncovered.

  • Very informative and very well put together. My favorite part was the bison skeleton. Very worth the cheap admission price.
  • Been there two times loved it both times. Surprise what I learned. If you haven't been there go.
  • Very informative and a great tour guide when we were there!
  • Was interesting to learn about the early Indians in south Dakota
  • If you are in town for a day, it's definitely worth the visit. I actually learned quite a bit, but was only disappointed that there is no time line. All of the artifacts are scattered, and though the civilization only lasted an estimate of less than two hundred years, I think as an archaeologist dig site, a little more information which helps us understand how the people progressed would be helpful. It's scattered a bit as it is. The video should focus more on the people and less on the project as well. I think most of us are much more interested in understanding ancient civilization when we visit, than we are in archaeologists of today.
