This stop is for the people who want the really western museum feel. They have a HUGE gun collection that is awesome as well as a basement full of wagon and buggies! It was a great stop and one we will do again.

On the lower level (ground) there are authentic covered wagons (one you can sit in), milk carts, hearses and other vehicles. The main floor has photos and paraphernalia of notorious cowboys/girls who lived there. And if you like guns, they have hundreds from that time...More

We visited the museum in the off season so it was nice and quiet inside as I think we were the only people who were customers. There is so much to see and read that it was impossible to read and absorb everything, but we...More

If you love history this is for you. My favorite part was the wagons and buggies in the basement. But it has lots of other interesting things to check out on your way through it. Well worth your time to see it.

This is a very well organized museum and sets forth the history of Deadwood in a chronological order. There is a lot of memorabilia and the downstairs is filled with period vehicles. Set aside about an hour for this attraction.

Was in deadwood and saw the museum and took a chance. A self tour and amazing history of the area and exhibits. Some area would only light up when you entered the area. So on the bottom floor could cause you to pause a second.

As a history buff, I never get tired of visiting museums, especially if they pertain to the Civil War and the Old West. On our western trip, nearly every town has a museum or two. Take Deadwood, South Dakota, for example. Take time to visit...More
