Something I think every America should see and it is surround by the beautiful Black Hills. You don't really need more than 30 minutes here.

It is three miles from downtown Rapid City. If you would like to see how gold and silver jewelry is created, this is a great tour. It takes approx. 30 minutes. Call to find out what time the tour is offered.

Went to the factory with a group of 44 people. They only take a max of 12 on the factory tour so it took 4 groups to go through the factory tour. Waiting around the showroom seemed like an eternity - unless you were hot to buy, and some did. For the rest of the group it was a bit... More

3rd visit . Everyone should go see this wonderful piece of American history. So worth it. But I will say the Crazy Horse statue is much more impressive. Know this will not be finished in our life time it is a must see American Icon. Loved it.

This was a great *free* tour of a gold factory. You'll learn what makes Black Hills Gold, as well as how they make their jewelry. You'll be taken through the factory and get to see employees actually working on different pieces at each stage of the process. Tour takes about a half an hour. In a flyer I picked up... More

We were here many years ago & now returned with our sons & were not disappointed, although no2 son thought the faces would be bigger! Parking only $11 and return as many times as you like. Make the effort to view from the studio - it's worth it.

I have visited before over the years. We took our children when they were young. Went back this time with our daughter, her husband, and our grandson. He loved it and was very excited. Also, lots of great improvements over the years. It's a fun and picturesque place for all ages.
