Filled with wonderful artifacts of just about everything and so very interesting. If you would like to see how their displays represent the old west and many other items of interest they have collected in one house, this is the place to come. Well worth my time.

The Pettigrew museum was great. We went as a family. It had lots of history & enchantment. The house, beautiful. The displays were really nice. I did not know anything about the history of Sioux Falls & this explained & told tales that kept us interested & we learned about the origins of that city. loved it!

You can clearly see how the rich and prominent people of this city lived in the days past. Fully restored with great artifacts of the time. Many history lessons can be learned about the city. Only bad part was they do not allow you to take pictures.

The house, built in 1889, was purchased by Senator Pettigrew in 1911. It offers a look at how the upper crust lived in that era. The senator was a collector and amateur archeologist and built the attached museum (made in part from petrified wood) to showcase his finds. An interesting, low cost (free) place to visit.
