The Museum at Black Hills Institute is a modest but incredible natural history museum. Natural history enthusiasts can rest assured; you will find something unique in this treasure trove of amazing dinosaurs, fossils, minerals and collectibles from all over the world. South Dakota once had seaside property. During the Cretaceous while T. Rex roamed the land, a seaway spanning central South Dakota abounded with sea creatures. Our collection teems with many of these strange and amazing animals
