If you want to educate yourself about wounded knee, save yourself the six dollars that this place charges and go do some research. Lots of information on the internet. We went to this so-called museum anticipating the hype we heard elsewhere. There wasn't anything particularly fascinating about the Native-American display or information displayed in one small room. The information provided is heavily covered in some good books (or even if you research and take the time at a relatively good library). This is just another sad notion to inform the common folk with very little about some American heritage that has been swept beneath the rug. I do hope that the national museum of the American-Indian in Washington D.C. isn't this disappointing.

With our travels around Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota we stopped at several historical areas. We had listen to a book on CD, "The Life of Crazy Horse" and since we stayed in Wall after viewing the Badlands we felt we should go in this museum. We were glad we did. There is a short film and then storyboards to read.
I recommend it if you are interested in America's history.

We thought that the museum was very informative. I would definitely recommend making the stop. You can do the entire thing in an hour or so.

I had no idea of the history here, very interesting (sad, but interesting). This is worth a stop, beats the tourist trap of Wall Drug!

Passed through Wall on 7/31/14. The museum was definitely an eye opener. It's a part of our country's history, sad as it may be. I would whole hearted recommend that you take the time to go through this museum and become enlightened as well. Located just down the street from Wall Drugs. The rest of main street is all commercial, but this is for real.
