I visited in mid-September 2017 and the museum was open at the location right next to Interstate 90. The exhibits - mostly placards - tell the heartbreaking and sobering story of the massacre of native Americans at Wounded Knee. Not a shining moment in the...More

Wonderful experience of the memorabilia of the Wounded Knee Massacre. Not sure if it has been rebuilt given the fire a couple of years ago however, and would be a great loss of artifacts

We were in Wall for a couple of days, but this museum seemed to be closed the entire time, which was disappointing as I was looking forward to learning more about the Native American culture.
