Everyone Will Feel Like A Kid At The Nostalgic Children's Museum of South Dakota
When it comes to museums, there is no better place to be than the Mount Rushmore State, which has these educational institutions for history, science, music, and everything in between. If you have children, however, there is one museum in particular that stands out as being a must-visit, which is the nostalgic Children’s Museum of South Dakota:
Located in Brookings, the Children's Museum of South Dakota is billed as promoting "learning for children of all ages and abilities through interactive, informal, hands-on exhibits."
Opened in 2010, the Children's Museum of South Dakota is a first-of-its-kind museum for the Mount Rushmore State, thanks to a whopping 5,000 interactive parts and 550 books.
No matter your age, you are sure to find something to love at the Children's Museum of South Dakota, beginning with real-world-inspired exhibits, which include the darling Market Fresh Grocery, Post Office, Under the Hood mechanic shop, and fitness area.
Do you have a little one who loves to create? They are sure to enjoy the expertly curated Art Studio, Airway Adventure, and Creativity Lab!
What is South Dakota without the wide-open prairie? The Children's Museum even pays homage to the plains via their hands-on Prairie Farm, Sod House, and Tipi.
In the summertime, when the weather is high, the Children's Museum of South Dakota even has an outdoor section that is perfect for not only running around but digging, making music, and splashing about.
As if all of the above was not reason enough to visit, the Children's Museum also hosts several special classes and events, including play dates, camps, and cooking demonstrations.
