Museum of the American Bison

Rapid City, SD

The Museum of the American Bison and Great Plains Center is dedicated to telling one of the most captivating stories in American history- the amazing survival of the American bison. While a sad saga of greed and profiteering that changed the lives and traditions of people over a century ago, the story of the bison today is one of the hope and resiliency.

Exhibits include the history of the bison in North America from its prehistoric beginnings to its near extinction, the exploits of western figures who helped save the remaining bison at the end of the 1800’s, the cultural significance of the buffalo to tribes across the country, and special rotating exhibits dedicated to our unique Great Plains heritage.
