  • The Dahl Arts Center is a great complex in downtown Rapid City for both established artists and emerging artists. There are galleries, the diorama room, event space and the cafe. I was there recently ...  more »

  • The exhibits are pretty nice, though it feels a bit sparse. This is among the stops for the Trolley and it takes well under an hour to go through with a child. If you're alone or with appreciative adults, you can easily spend a full hour here taking in all of the individual pieces. There is a children's room which is a great place for kids to express themselves and help kill time if you're waiting on the trolley.
  • Really nice little free art museum. They also manage the permits for "Art Ally" down the road a bit. Great work!
  • I have been renting the large room at the Dahl for many years. Our Rock School (kids band program) has a concert every 4 months and the Dahl has been our go to spot. The staff is great and the venue is perfect for our event.
  • Always a relaxing beautiful spot. Local artists feature is nice. Good gift shop
  • Beautiful art center. Attended a wedding and reception at this location. The staff did a very good job of keeping the wedding party happy and the building itself was a perfect location to host both events.

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90. If you want a scenic escape, look for a bed and breakfast, campsite, or cabin in the surrounding Black Hills National Forest.
