“beneath Mt Rushmore's watchful gaze”
Beneath the watchful gaze of Mount Rushmore in the beautiful Black Hills sits the National Presidential Wax Museum. Visitors gain insight into our nation’s democracy through life-size, life-like wax figures depicting our country’s most shaping experiences in dramatically historical settings.
