Telling the truth of Wounded Knee, seeing the history, living the horror was very emotional. Quiet, sombering, drawing you in to the pain. To me it was truly the first 9/11 to the first Americans. Written. Accounts, displays were great. Truly glad we visited.

If you are on your way to or from the Black Hills, this little gem is a must see. It has recently opened and is just a block from Wall Drug. The modest $6 per adult ($5 for 65 +) is well worth your investment. There is a brief video that sets the stage for the exhibits that follow. Be... More

The history of this massacre and the people's lives who were ended and forever changed is overwhelming. It was tastefully presented through video and exhibits. There is no blame presented just what happened in the eyes of the natives and the whites.One must see this.

This is a small museum that tastefully tells the story of a tragic and horrific event in American History. Take an hour of your day in Wall, South Dakota to go through the Wounded Knee Museum.

We stopped in to see the museum for the first time and it was educational. Before we went into the museum the had hoop dancers and some other performers and it was wonderful after you could walk around and look at the benders working on their items and watch them make some beautiful dream catchers and bead work. Then we... More

They put on a very good performance that was extremely enjoyably. Really thought this was the best thing to see in the town of Wall.

This small museum is excellent. Many years ago I read "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" and "Black Elk Speaks". "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" was a tough read, as I had to put it aside often because my emotions were getting the best of me. Reading the displays in this museum and watching the short film brought some... More

We visited the Museum upon the recommendation of two different couples at the B&B where were stayed in the Badlands. Not knowing all of the details of the Wounded Knee massacre, the Museum provided a thorough and understandable picture of the event. The admission fee was very reasonable. And there were Native American craftsmen showing their skills in the lobby... More
