We really enjoyed this small museum and collection. It's free and you can spend as little or as much time as you like. It doesn't take very long to view everything.

It's free admission and interesting history. There is a volunteer who seems to know a lot the area and is very friendly and helpful with answering your questions.

The premises house several historical buildings from different eras in the town's history, and it is a free historical attraction in Bismarck. Park nearby, come here and read the info plaques, and go have a cup of coffee at a nearby downtown cafe.

Enjoyed the do-it-yourself, free tour reading the placards. History abounded in the early settlement of Bismarck: the Northern Pacific Locomotive #2164, the Weather Station and the first non-Catholic church. A free museum inside the weather station.

If you like History, and get a feel of stepping back in time, take a moment to drive out to the south of mandan and learn and walk in the footsteps of the mandan indians as well as custers forts....good deal

Pros: Interesting history of the first settlement in the Bismarck area, with plenty of weather history as the site was used by the National Weather Service for around 45 years. Cons: Small, musty, and not run by anyone. Just walk in and read the signs....More
