Culture & History

From prehistoric dinosaurs to the Native Americans that first called this land home through the settlers that came from across the globe to make a better life, South Dakota is extraordinarily rich in history and culture. See the 60-foot-tall faces of the Founding Fathers on Mount Rushmore. Behold the world's largest in-progress mountain carving at Crazy Horse Memorial. Follow the trail of Lewis & Clark, find museums of every size and focus, and experience the Wild West of legend.
