  Make the Cultural Heritage Center part of your class legislative visit

Bringing students to Pierre this winter to observe the state legislature? Discover hands-on history at the Cultural Heritage Center, home of the Museum of the South Dakota State Historical Society, located northeast of the State Capitol at 900 Governors Drive.

With a museum visit, students can gain insight into the state history that informs the legislature’s work. 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.

Visitors can see (and in some cases, even touch) artifacts from our state’s past. To schedule a free tour, guided or self-guided, contact Jeff Mammenga at Jeff.Mammenga@state.sd.us or (605) 773-6000. Museum hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CST, Monday-Saturday and 1-4:30 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
