This was OK, but I think we are mid-west museumed out. There was a fiber arts display which was very interesting.

We discovered the SD artist Oscar Howe during a visit to Mitchell, SD. We fell in love with his dynamic and spiritual images of Native American subjects. This musuem features a number of his works, as well as other permanent displays. Among these are works of Charles Hargens, Jr. who painted classic western images (similar to the Wyeth Pirate painting genre). Also on site are a variety of historic prairie buildings, an old SD one-room school house, a small prairie church and a mansion of the day one can tour (price incuded with museum admission). -----
