Better than the bigger zoos/more famous zoo. Really a great place to visit! My kids liked it so much they listed it as their favorite stop on our road trip.

Important historical stop that celebrates the sacrifice of an abolitionist family. We enjoyed our stop at the museum. Your guide was very knowledgeable.

Crowded! Sturgis bikers, campers, families all over. Bathroom line was super long. We waited an hour and a half and Old Faithful did not blow. We left to beat the crowds out. It was so different than I remember as a child. I still think it's worth the stop, but be prepared for the huddled masses and long waits.

Loved it! Great food! Loved the in house brewed Birch and Rootbeer. Loved Artie's Spin Dip appetizer. Food was amply proportioned. We enjoyed ourselves and too home a crate of Dr. Rootbeer.

Fabulous museum organized in chronological cause/effect order. Great informational, multi-perspective videos. Artifacts of high quality and interest. Staff was helpful. Teachers/AAA/Military receive discounts on entry and gift shop items. Glad we stopped.

We enjoyed driving through the Bear World. We drove through 3 times to see the behaviors of the bears. It was cool to see them drinking, lounging, playing and even pooping right in front of our car. The rides were more for little kids. The baby bears were hilarious to watch play fight. We followed a tour bus that feeds the bears and watched from our car.

Cool gambling town with feel of the Old West. Full of bikers from Sturgis. Cobblestone roads were nice.

We enjoyed the park. We were very interested in learning about its construction process. Good films helped explain the enormity of the task.

The statue is enormous. There is a nice sign that explains its history and dimensions. The museum is closed due to the pandemic, but the gift store is open. A fun photo opportunity and chance to stretch. There are some fun instruments for kids to play with near the statue. Also a DQ is right next door for a quick treat to eat in the park.
