We visited here in late July 2016. The visitor's center serves as a very informative museum with historical overview and artifacts. I found the diorama of the On-a-Slant village very helpful to gather a sense of the whole. The lodges were very nicely reconstructed. Each shared information from agriculture, hunting, and daily living. I thought it was the perfect amount... More

This is village a beautiful replica of an old native Mandan village. You can take the trolley to the first stop, climb a few stairs and the village is just ahead to the right. It's worth the visit.

The visitor center and reconstructed village are well worth spending a couple of hours of touring and learning. State park rangers provide guided tours of the village, while relating the history of the site and how the people lived.

We took the tour and found it very interesting. Nice area. Lots of artifacts that show what it was like living in that village. Make sure you also see Gen Custers house in this park

There are five reconstructed earth lodges at this site. The Mandan Indians lived here for a couple hundred years before they moved north near Fort Mandan, where Lewis and Clark stayed near them for the winter they stayed in North Dakota. The lodges are of different sizes, and show the construction of the lodges. The informative, educational markers explain various... More

Make sure sign up for a tour of this re-creation of the Mandan Indian village here in the park. Tour guide was helpful and informative. Got to tour the insides of many of the earthlodge reconstructed on site. Fascinating to see how these earthlodges were constructed. Explained the history how up to 90% of the original population of this village... More

We visited with our four girls and we all enjoyed our tour. Pay the extra money to have a tour guide walk you through and tell you the history. The paid tour also includes the tour of Custard's home.
