We went to this old courthouse to enjoy the exhibits. But, wow, the exterior of the building and quartz stone that it and several other buildings in Sioux Falls were constructed, is beyond description. Just so beautiful, and such wonderful craftsmanship that you just don't see anymore. We loved it. The WWI exhibit is so well done. There are even a few "hands-on" things that the kids can do rather than just looking at the exhibits. There is a wonderful room upstairs of old gas station memorabilia. The courtroom itself is so nice, but it would be more meaningful if the witness stands and Judge's bench etc. were all in place as they would have been when trials were held there long ago. Still, so nice and well done. Be sure to go into the bathrooms on the second floor since they also have a period authenticity.
