This place is free and open till 11pm. A great late night place to stop while on vacation if you aren't ready to stay in your room after 7pm. A variety of animals in various positions and scenery. Some are very unique.

Take a few minutes to check it out. It is a really magnificent display! It's at the Mobil station off Exit 61 on I90.

As other reviews npote, this is located onsite at a gas station-the cleanest most well stocked one around no less. A display of dozens of wild animals are on display for free. Almost any anima You could imagine and then some. My kids and husband really enjoyed the stop!

So we pulled in for gasoline and a few beers and we're blown away not even expecting this! This was the coolest gas station/ museum I've ever been to...and possibly the only one of its kind. Our visit was accidental and we'll worth it. I would visit this again purposely next time.

This place is located in the first gas station (Mobil) off the first I90 westbound Rapid City exit. While I filled the car, my wife went to use the facilities.
