“Must see for taxidermy enthusiasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

If you have any interest in taxidermy, be sure to take a few minutes to check this place out. Its just a black off the interstate located on the grounds of a gas station. There's no admission charge and it doesn't take long to see everything. The collection includes eveyrhing from giraffes to deer to a hippopotamus, all of which were hunted by the same person.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

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. She came back to the car much too soon and just about grabbed me saying, "You gotta see this!" It takes about 30 minutes to take in the exhibit. The displayed animals are magnificent. And it's free! Great find.
