“Old Courthouse Museum - So glad we stopped for a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

A stop on the Sioux Falls Transit Trolley, this is a MUST !! Local and State history is abundant here, with many artifacts and helpful descriptions. In its time, this building was the biggest courthouse between Chicago and Denver. Now it's a GEM of a museum.

“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

They don't build them like this anymore. Turning this Old Courthouse into a Museum is wonderful.
There is a lot of History in this old building.
It is free, but please leave a donation to help preserve this work of art.

“Free museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Beautiful old courthouse building that has been preserved. Free admission. Interesting exhibits. Really enjoyed the exhibits with the builders of Sioux Falls and the different types of architecture. The old room that was the court room and gallery were also nice.
