The Children’s Museum of South Dakota sparks imagination and learning for all children and their grown-ups through play, creativity, and discovery.

A Children’s Museum stimulates curiosity and creativity by providing children with opportunities for hands-on learning, the key to their cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being. Children’s Museums are committed to serving the unique needs and interests of children by providing exhibits and programs that create a spark for discovery and lifelong learning. We promote learning for children of all ages and abilities through interactive, informal, hands-on exhibits.
