The museum has many gifts that are unique and 1 of a king also has a place where you can feed the Baffolo if they are nearby

“Fun for all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had a great time! Dakota Thunder and the educational museum was fantastic. True North Dakota history captured in Jamestown. When family visits from out of state we take them to the Museum. Its a great attribute to our area.

“Who can beat seeing this HUGE Buffalo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

A great quick side trip just off of the interstate. Heck you can see it from the road. Frontier village and the buffalo all in one stop. Good views of the ND prairie from the hill and if you are lucky, a sighting of the buffalo heard in the pasture below. I would definitely check it out if only for a photo op!

“Great place to stop in North Dakota”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The small frontier town, the giant buffalo, the buffalo herd, and the museum are worth checking out. Jamestown in an average small town, but the handful of attractions that they have with easy access from the freeway is worth a short stop.

“Check it out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I didn't pay to see the buffalo exhibit, but I had fun poking my nose around the gift shop. The albino buffalo was cool (as far as white bison go), and the big buffalo statue is...big! I wouldn't go out of my way just for the museum, but it's worth seeing while you are at the Frontier Village.
