The Museum @ 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.

The intriguing nature of the Museum's specimens stems from the founding geologists' passion to collect items they love and to share them with as many people as possible. Over the past several decades they have inspired many people with this same love of natural history. We sincerely hope if you are not a natural history fan when you arrive... you will be by the time you leave!
