Enjoyed the do-it-yourself, free tour reading the placards. History abounded in the early settlement of Bismarck: the Northern Pacific Locomotive #2164, the Weather Station and the first non-Catholic church. A free museum inside the weather station.

If you like History, and get a feel of stepping back in time, take a moment to drive out to the south of mandan and learn and walk in the footsteps of the mandan indians as well as custers forts....good deal

Pros: Interesting history of the first settlement in the Bismarck area, with plenty of weather history as the site was used by the National Weather Service for around 45 years. Cons: Small, musty, and not run by anyone. Just walk in and read the signs. Only takes about 15-20 minutes to go through.

I was a nice visit to the begining of Bismarck with the church and a little museum. I was free to visit and there was a guide when we were there.
