  Don’t miss spring learning opportunities at the Cultural Heritage Center

Teachers of all grades are encouraged to bring their students to the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre to experience South Dakota history any time throughout the school year, including for end-of-year field trips.

Guided and unguided tours are available. There is no cost for tours. 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.

The South Dakota Experience galleries tell the story of South Dakota from American Indian life before the arrival of Europeans in the 1700s through the end of the 20th century. Students can walk through a tipi, “ride” a train and “milk” a cow, among other activities.

The State Historical Society is also partnering with the South Dakota Discovery Center for South Dakota History Adventures, May 6-10. There is a nominal cost to participate in this event. Find more information on the South Dakota Discovery Center website. This event is intended for students in grades 4-6.
