About The Journey Museum Learning Center

Our goal is to preserve and explore the heritage of the cultures of the Black Hills region. Our visitors will expand their knowledge of the Black Hills natural environment in order to understand and value our past, enrich our present, and meet the challenges of the future.

The Journey Museum and Learning Center

 

The Journey Museum Learning Center


…takes you on an awe-inspiring journey through time, from the violent upheaval that formed the mystical Black Hills over 2.5 billion years ago to the continuing saga of the Western frontier. When your journey is complete, you will fully understand the legacy of the land and its people.

The Journey Museum Learning Center brings together four major prehistoric and historic collections to tell the complete story of the Western Great Plains - from the perspective of the Lakota people and the pioneers who shaped its past, to the scientists who now study it. The Black Hills story comes to life through our interactive learning experiences such as the Wells Fargo Theater, Paleontology Tent and the STEAM Lab.
