We were very surprised by the variety of exhibits, the number of exhibits and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend visiting the panorama room that depicts the history of the west - extremely well done!

Wasn't greeted just nodded at - no interaction from any of the staff. Disappointed - was expecting more especially during the summer months!

Enjoyed this art museum of Rapid City! Several changing galleries show different forms of art from Native work to Expresssionism. The art center offers classes to long term guests or residents. It adds to the art life in Rapid City.

We stopped in with our two kids (ages 10 & 8) admittedly because it was free and the ratings were good. We were very impressed. The facility isn't that large but it's very nice with some great quality exhibits, including a special activity area just...More
