Museums in South Dakota

What will you discover?

The variety and depth of South Dakota's museums are enough to turn anyone into a "museum person." From the carefully curated collections at places like National Music Museum in Vermillion to the stopped-time vibe of Adams House in Deadwood and the one-of-a-kind International Vinegar Museum in Roslyn, there are historical artifacts across the state that will keep you thinking and entertained.

Don't forget to keep your eyes open for small-town museums, where Native, military, agricultural, and some just plain weird artifacts will leave you with some fun pictures as well as the ability to start a story with "You know what I saw in South Dakota?"
