VERY Nice museum - you can make a free will offering - we didn't have enough time in our day to see all of the exhibits!

For the cost of this place, expected better and more exhibits. I was disappointed and think it is a waste of taxpayer money.

This Heritage Center is very interesting and very well organized. A bus load of 47 stopped here on our way home from Medora.

I had not been through the Heritage Center since the remodel completed recently. It is well laid out, very interesting, educational, has an assortment of galleries from the dinosaur era to present, and is free to visit. I'm looking forward to driving by after dark sometime to see the Northern Lights display in the atrium.

We visited here with our son and 4 year old granddaughter and having seen it before it's remodelling we were so impressed with the new layout and exhibits. There were some strollers for children and wheelchairs for those who can't get about which made our visit much easier. The little restaurant served delicious food and was bright and clean. I...

This newly remodeled museum is a great place to visit. There are a lot of fun exhibits, displays, and interactive activities that appeal to all ages. There also is a nice gift shop with some wonderful items from local artists. Allow at least a couple of hours here. This is an excellent source for information on our wonderful state.
