We enjoyed the displays and the use of a hand held want with a narration on each president. The lady working there was very friendly.

I took my kids here as an educational field trip for our homeschool history class. what a great experience!!! we were greeted by a very knowledgeable and friendly staff who made us feel right at home. The fee to enter the museum was well worth the fun that we had! My children and I were each given a digital audio... More

What a great place to stop and enjoy the Presidents in Art Form and to learn about them. We've been to Wax Exhibits in Las Vegas and this is just as good. Worth a visit

My kids loved the wax museum and gift shop. My kids range in age from 16 to 2 and it was fun for the whole family. My 11 year old was in heaven. He loves everything history and was the last one to leave. Definately worth the trip.

Spring break trip to the Black Hills. Our 7 and 8 year olds enjoyed the audio wand tour and gained some basic knowledge of US history. My husband and I got a good review of high school US history. Tour took about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The museum and restrooms were spotless and well-maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful.... More

My family visited this museum on opening day for the 14/15 season. We were the first visitors of the year. We were greeted by a very polite and knowledgable staff. I have never been to wax museum, and really didn't know what to expect. I was extremely impressed. The tour includes a digital tour guide that allows you to type... More

The museum and staff were excellent! It was a great experience and we will visit again when we come back to SD. It even kept the attention of 7 and 4 year old boys!

Wax museums are usually a lot of fun. This one is among the best, and my favorite. All of the presidents are displayed, and they look very lifelike....it's like walking among greatness. There are also a number of non-president statues (i.e. Ben Franklin). Very much worth the time and money.

Like all wax museums, some of the wax statues are dead ringers for the president they represent. Some are complete misses. That is part of the fun of going to a wax museum. You get to be the critic! The information provided about each of the presidents is interesting. Be prepared to do a lot of reading. Some of the... More

Seeing the first few wax presidents was pretty impressive. But it was tedious to stand and listen to all the history and stories. You could spend three hours there. If you're a real history buff, this is a great place.
