WE LOVED IT
Sep 2019
We just happened upon this little museum and decided to go in. First of all, it is much bigger than it looks. It was filled with history and culture about North Dakota. We really enjoyed our visit here!

Small but very nice!

We learned a lot about the North Dakota area in this little museum. The lady we talked to was very nice and helpful. A small gift shop with some very nice things. Lots of good books. Not very expensive to enter and enjoy.

Well worth the stop! This is an amazing show case of the Bowman area, geographically, culture and history ( ancient / prehistoric and recent). Superbly displayed Native American, pioneer and dinosaur artifacts. Don’t miss!

Great little museum. Help us learn about the North Dakota culture and history on the Indian population in its history. Write ups around each area were very good

Do Not Miss!

This is a wonderful hidden treasure close by the intersection of highways 12 and 85. One could spend the whole day trying to absorb all the history in the many displays. And talk about Dinosaurs! Wow!

Interesting fund

This was certainly well worth a $5 entry fee. I enjoyed not only the dinosaur bones but also the Native American items and the cowboy displays. Very new in appearance and is set up for more displays.

Stopped in on a whim and was very pleasantly surprised. Great details about history of North Dakota and the area. Worth 45 mins of your time.

So much to see! What a nice surprise!

If you are traveling near Bowman, ND, don't miss this museum. So much history to be found there. It covers the Native Americans and has excellent displays and photos. It has a section on the homesteaders with displays and photos. A really impressive paleontology section and active interaction with the local archeology department. It was a nice surprise.

Bowman area history!

This museum is comprehensive covering from prehistoric times to the present. There does not seem to be a coherent flow in time sequence. There is a fee. Large, well-stocked gift shop.

Excellent small museum with interested no exhibits for everyone
Oct 2017 • Couples
My wife and I visited the museum on our Seattle- NY road trip in October 2017. Free parking and $5 to get in makes this a bargain.

There are lots of exhibits covering Dakota's history:

Dinosaurs
General Custer
Sitting Bull and the Sioux
Farming
Military
Local history

Definitely worth a call if you are nearby. If I have informed you, please give me a "Helpful" vote. Thank you.
