It is completely devoted to Harold Schafer and his wife. I owned most of the town, invented Mr. Bubble. You watch an 8 minute video, then tour the museum. Means more if you are an American or from North Dakota.

Visit the home of the man who invented many of the products you grew up with. Curious what Mr. Schafer did? Guess you'll just have to stop in and see for yourself!!

I would not make this a priority. But if you have time it is interesting to learn about the generous entrepreneur (and his lovely wife) who saved this small town. Think of John D. Rockefeller and Williamsburg, VA, on a smaller scale...

The Harold Schafer Heritage Center is important to understanding how modern Medora came to be. I grew up in South Dakota but was not familiar with the story of the Gold Seal man and the guy who brought me Mr. Bubble!

Everyone who enjoys Medora should know that the town is successful because of this man and his wife, Sheila. It is a free museum (can't beat that) full of really interesting facts about the Schafer family. Worth the time to find out how the modern Medora came to be.
