This was a nice break from the other noisy tourist spots. It was quiet while all the visitors listened to their individual history lessons. I learned much about our presidents that I had not known before. It was a little cold in the museum; you might want to grab a sweatshirt!

The bits of history that accompanied the exhibits was very informative. Likeness of the Presidents was pretty good. A couple were a little off in my opinion, but overall it was a great wax museum.

First off, I have to start this by saying the lady who was working that night was AMAZING! She was so so so nice and gave us "kid prices" to get in. She talked with us and was very friendly. The wax statues are very creepy but very cool and interesting. I WOULD DEFIANTLY RECOMMEND TO GO TO THIS! It's... More

We had a Groupon for this as well so we got a good deal to get in. I am glad we had a deal because it was just average. I don't think the wax figures had a striking resemblance to the actual real-life presidents, but honestly it's in Keystone, SD so I should probably not expect Madame Tussauds quality. We... More

Very nice place, I like the phone like wands to listen to the stories. Cheap enough for whole family. Lots of information about each president.

Our family of 4 (boys 14 and 12) visited the wax museum on a whim. We are not very "museum" people. Short attention spans for most if us- but this was a self guided tour with an audio gadget that you type in the number of the area you wanted to listen to. The wax figures were interesting and the...

My husband and I visited here yesterday. Being a history buff, I was excited about it. The tour winds around the facility. To get the most out of the experience, I recommend using the wand narration system they provide. As you go up to each exhibit, there is a number you punch into your wand and hold it up to... More
