Best museum in the capital of North Dakota. Dinosaur bones; Indian artifacts; the gold rush historical; it's a huge two level building that is still free for all ages. Where can can you get a chance to smell the Wild West!

The heritage center is awesome! From smelling buffalo dung, to making the geese make noise; it a great time. (Sounds awkward, but it's fun!) I can't wait to visit with the new expansion!

They are doing a big addition, can't wait to see. There is all kinds of history here. Great place for Grandparents to take their grand kids and their own children. It's a fun place to bring back your own childhood memories and sharing them. Don't forget, at one time North Dakota was filled with dinosaurs, they have some great skeletons... More

We love going to the heritage center, something to do to pass the time, it's free, it's educational. I always learn something new, and the kids always have a fun time too.

This center is currently under construction and according to staff will not be completed until late 2014. We had no knowledge of this and had traveled over 400 miles to visit. When completed, it will really be a gem!
