What a cool building and cool displays. I love the "old-ness" of it and that they've purposefully kept it that way.

If you are looking for a place to learn more about Sioux Falls history, this is a must-see. This is a three-story structure that exposes visitors to all sorts of interesting aspects to Sioux Falls history.

This is one of the buildings made from the quartz stone from the Sioux Falls area. I became really connected here initially because my youngest daughter became a US citizen in this building after her adoption from Korea. It is a time capsule from the past of our Sioux Falls heritage and just the outside of the building itself is really awesome.

This museum is in a converted courthouse in Downtown Sioux Falls. The courthouse would be an attraction in itself, but they managed to stuff a fine museum inside of it as well! The displays are in small chambers throughout the building which makes for a very intimate viewing. But don't let the size fool you! The displays are world class!

If you love history then you can spend an entire afternoon getting transported back in time. So much to see and learn. I am lucky I live in Sioux Falls because they have rotating visiting exhibits as well as staples of the history of Sioux Falls as well as South Dakota. Also has a great gift shop where you can purchase books and different items. Well worth a visit or 2!
