“Well worth your time and the cost of admission.”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

This museum is well worth the visit. The architecture of the building is remarkable. The third floor displays about the Dakota war are especially well done and very informative. The other 2 floors are also worth viewing.

“Stop by & say Hello”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

This historical society does a wonderful job interpreting their county's history. They also have a large research room, so if you have relation in that area at any given time you should be able to track them down.

“Great Museum”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

The exhibits are of high quality. Lots of local history and artifacts. The research room has detailed data if you are researching family roots in the area. The 3rd floor is a very high quality standing exhibit on the conflict between the white pinoneers and the Native American Dakotas They have great artifacts, including a bear rug, a full size canoe and much more.
