Newly-expanded, the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center offers incredible views, a surface tour, exhibit area and an outstanding gift shop. Exhibits include historic photographs, videos, science and mining artifacts, and a 3-D model of the underground. From our deck, view the 1,000-foot-deep Homestake Open Cut, an iconic landmark in the Black Hills, and see the many varieties of rock that created this unique landscape. We are open daily, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., June through September. Admission is free.
