If you are interested in the old west and the making of the professional rodeo circuit, this museum is worth the stop. Plus, it offers great views of the Missouri River Valley.

There's a lot of stuff here. All well displayed. I'm not much into rodeos, but this was still very interesting.

Great displays showing the history of Rodeo in SD. Historical and Plains art work are everywhere with displays that really bring out the feel of the Bronc buster days.

Exhibits were placed very well which afforded a good over view of the Rodeo riders life. We had met Casey many years before and particularly enjoyed his part in the museum.

Nice displays, I am not a rodeo fan but can appreciate one of the icons of that era and sport. New building, up on a bluff looking over the Missouri, well done for a modest museum.

This is a very nice facility. The lighting I find very bad for looking at the stuff behind glass. I attended a family reunion get together and they have a very nice facility for this which includes kitchen facilities.
