  • We were here on Friday, March 23, around 2pm. There were lots of parking spaces. There were very few people inside. We paid $10/adult; $8/senior; $7/17yo and below. The ticket is good for the next day too. The facility is clean and organized. A lot of history however i think we were there during the dead time because there were no activities for the kids and no programs. I think there film showing but we were not able to see it. It may have been great but we will never know.
  • We ended up going there because a snow storm that stranded us in Rapid city. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There was plenty hands on exhibits for little ones, the exhibits were all very intresting and relevant to the area. I was very impressed and enjoyed the Native American history part of the exhibits and displays it was respectful and well presented. It was a true depiction of our amazing people and there struggles. It was well worth 10 bucks. Thank you
  • This was a fun place to visit. The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. I enjoyed the materials were targeted for people of all ages, and my favorite part was the 'pit' for kids to dig for artifacts. They were bunged to the ground. Looked like fun. We liked that the admission let us in for 2 days, so we could enjoy a show in the theatre.
  • A lot of history here. Friendly staff. It was worth the visit. They even have sections that little ones would like.
  • Snow day fun day. We enjoyed it and the kids did too.
