“Fantastic Museum Well Worth a Stop, Parking is Strange”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Pros: A nice small collection with great variety of art styles. The woman who ran the shop was very friendly and helpful. Lots of neat stuff in the gift shop.

Cons: Parking requires a pass that you must get at the museum, then walk back to your car to put in the window.

Note: Located on the South Dakota State University Campus.
