  Cultural Heritage Center Let the Cultural Heritage Center add context to your class legislative visit

Many teachers and students visit the Capitol every winter during legislative session for a live look at the political process. Help your students understand the state history that informs this work by making the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre part of your trip. Here’s a sampling of the state’s political history on display at the CHC.

The South Dakota Experience galleries tell the story of the state from American Indian life before the arrival of Europeans in the 1700s through the end of the 20th Century. The Hogen Gallery features changing exhibits. Currently, this gallery features “Play Ball! The National Pastime in South Dakota,” an exhibit covering the history of baseball in the state.

Museum hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CST, Monday-Friday. There is no cost for tours, which can either be guided or self-guided. For more information, visit www.history.sd.gov/museum. To schedule a tour, email Jeff Mammenga, South Dakota State Historical Society, or call (605) 773-6000.
