    We visited on our way out of the badlands toward the Minuteman Missile Site. Glad we stopped. Doesn't take much time, but a great opportunity to learn about mud homes of the early homesteaders.  more »

    It doesn't take long to get this look at how the people in the area lived and worked. A short film and a walk through the original buildings really gives you a good sense of what it was all about.  more »

    We didn't initially plan to stop at this museum, but after a hot morning of hiking in the Badlands, we decided to stop in on the way back to the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. After a short movi...  more »

    I was impressed to visit the historical site of homestead. other than that, I wasn't happy the customer service at the counter. There were two ladies working today, everything were fine until I started asking questions about the admission fee. $7 per person (adult) & $19 for a family. "How many people you count as a family?" I asked. A lady with short hair dye in black answered "4 in a group", another lady with gray hair answered but I forgot what she said, "5 of us in a group so do I need to pay $7 for extra person?" I asked again, the short black hair lady started becoming impatient, she said "total of $20.14; $19 plus tax" then she turned her face away and sighed never look at me again. Her co-worker didn't say much but nice was trying to help me. I wasn't sure what was the problem with the short black hair lady, maybe she had a bad day or I irritated her but she seemed to be nice to other customers who before me and after... smiling and chatting. Is she being racist?!!! i don't deserve to be treated like this! I spent 7 minutes at the historical site then left, no bye no thank you behind the door. I didn't feel welcome to this place, So I will not return to this shop ever again.

    Costs to see prairie dogs and an old dugout home. Good for history buffs but otherwise expensive for a random stop. Nice little store here.

    I love that history is preserved here. There isn't much to explore here though, and I wish there was more signs and info at each building.

    Just a very cool surprise stop on our way through the Badlands! The prairie dogs were so fun! Very interesting to see what life would have been like during the early 1900s.
