Be our one-millionth guest and win a Children’s Museum experience for you and up to 20 of your friends and family!
If attendance stays true to the projection, the Children’s Museum of South Dakota will welcome its one-millionth guest soon. Though COVID-19 has changed the timing of this milestone, we will still celebrate it with excitement!
Since the indoor space is still closed, the lucky guest will choose from a prize of either:
A Night at the Children’s Museum overnight experience with behind-the-scenes access for up to 20 of their friends and family members to be redeemed when our indoor space is open
A Night at the Children’s Museum outdoor prairie camping experience for up to 20 of their friends and family
Either way, it will be a children’s museum experience of a lifetime!
This milestone coincides with a celebration of the Museum’s 10-year anniversary in September 2020.
“We are thrilled to have had the honor to elevate the power of play in our community for the last 10 years,” said Museum Executive Director Kate Treiber. “While we take time to celebrate our one-millionth guest, we are also celebrating the learning and discovery that has taken place within our walls daily.”

When the Children’s Museum of South Dakota was in the planning stages, the annual attendance was estimated to be at 25,000. But the 10,000th guest was welcomed within 27 days of being open. Attendance kept going up from there. Currently, more than 105,000 people visit the museum annually.
“We are excited to celebrate with our one-millionth guest and we will be watching the numbers closely. It’s anyone’s guess exactly when it will happen, but when it does we will be excited to play along with them!”
“We are a unique experience offering guests of all ages space to connect and play while inspiring inquiry and wonder,” said Treiber. “When we opened, we worked hard to share with the community what a children’s museum does. We are a place designed entirely for children. We are honored to do this work every day, serving as a community resource and as an educational laboratory.”
