REVIEWS OF Adams Museum IN South Dakota

Terry Randall

It's worth to see the artifacts

Olivia Hirschbuehler

Nice museum, especially since it's free. (We left a donation though). Its one of the only good attractions in my opinion. Most of Deadwood's historic district is devoted to casinos, which is not my thing.

Heidi Bee

A must-see family-friendly attraction in historic Deadwood! Feel like you're right there in the thick of the action as you walk back in time inside the museum's three full floors. Your kids won't just read about history, they'll experience it! With multiple interactive exhibits (including a one-room schoolhouse classroom and kinetic sand), this is an excellent educational and fun place for the whole family. Donations are appreciated (and please give if you go!), but admission is free. Don't miss it!

Chris Jangula

Sherrie Stanton

Visited this museum about 12 years ago. A lot of changes but it is still a nice walk back in history. You can now talk pictures in the museum.

A beautiful lesson of history and art

Kyle Sheehan141

Kids place downstairs kept the 6 year old entertained. Very good museum on local culture

Hyrum Booth

Spent two hours there without even realizing it. I loved the bios on famous people from the area. Some unique pieces. Way more in there than you would think. What I didn't like was trying to find what numbers by the artifacts went with which description.

Michella Leverette

I liked out there were some interesting factsand there was a play area for the kids which was great.


Add this stop to your Deadwood visit. For a small museum there is lots to keep you reading and learning about the area. There is no entrance fee just a suggested donation. Very interesting things to look at and learn about. I was here over an hour learning about Deadwood.

Paul D'Oyley

Another great place for western history. Plan on visiting for a few hours. Has interactive features for the youth.

alan&sheila Breitzman

Very interesting glad we stopped we learned a lot

Sam Peterson

Great museum. Even if you are not stopping as part of the pastport program I'd highly recommend it. Focuses on the history of the area as well as American history and culture. Has activities in the lower level that can challenge both kids and adults. Only saw 1 staff when I was there so it might he tricky to find someone if you have questions. Also has a small gift shop to buy stuff in

John Mills

If you like Black Hills history, this is the best museum in the area. Adams was the first museum, so they collected some of the most interesting artifacts. I really learned a lot about the real history of Deadwood, and it's characters.

Jeffrey Banks

It's been a few years since I've been here, but I remember being very impressed with the displays.

Lots of interesting Deadwood history.

Liz jackson

Awesome museum! Amazing interactive exhibits

David H

It is okay but not necessarily centered on Deadwood history but a variety of artifacts related to city, county and state area. Even if a celebrity passed through Deadwood then there would be something related to that person.

L A Heath

Compact but impressive museum where they have preserved great historical items and stories of the area. We greatly enjoyed it.

Lisa Michelle

Informative and entertaining...friendly staff!!

Matt Walters

Awesome exhibits.. small of all types.. kids area. Perfect place to learn about deadwood and western history.. from 1970s back to dinosaurs

Dustin White

This museum looks small but holds so much. A very family friendly environment with lots of activities for kids which allows parents the chance to take in the exhibits as well.

Reza Goljani

The right place to know all about Deadwood!

Mr. Jim

Very interesting place. Great history. Be aware, however, that is not free entry. It's entry by donation and they tell you how much you "should" donate per person with someone standing there watching over you. They should just call it what it is. An admission charge.

Hannah Larson

It was filled with local artifacts which was interesting. However the information was spotty in some areas and oversharing in others. It is technically a free museum but they ask for a donation of $5 for adults and $3 for kids.

Roger Myers

Very interactive and lots of interesting history

Roger Bailey

Very good

P A Pete

Great museum. We enjoyed it very much.


Lots of history! Enjoyed all three floors of the museum. The staff was very friendly could have stayed for hours just to talk to her.

Kelly Graves

Captures the history of Deadwood and the old west pretty well. There are a few small town items that aren't really necessary, e.g., a girl scout uniform.

Ride by but didn't go in.

Enrique a

Great informative museum that tells you all about Deadwood history. It’s a must stop and even better yet, it’s free; although there is a donation box.

Jeff Swartwout

The story of Deadwood is told here in a quick and easy fashion. A casual stroll trough the different rooms takes about 45 minutes and you leave knowing the place and the people who built it. Admission is a suggested donation and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely a must do on your first visit to Deadwood.

minimate masterworks

Beautiful well laid out museum. Very informational. Wish there was more info on Seth Bullock.

Carolina Carnicelli-Eppards

Whoever loves history, the wild west and the big characters from that era, my case I love Calamity Jane and I learned a whole lot about her, even bought a book. Great interactive museum

donald magnuson

Went here while my teenagers were still sleeping 9:30AM, imposible to get them up before that! Great little museum, enjoyed it very much!

Zachary Finkel

Provides a comprehensive look at the history of Deadwood and the surrounding area. On the first floor is a look at wild Bill Hickok and the industries that built the town. Above is an exhibit on the culture of the native Americans and more modern works inspired by what deadwood became along with many maps of the area. In the basement many interactive exhibits show the natural history of the land and mining efforts. Please play in the sand!

Dan Petersen

Nice displays, very informative!

tina eaves

What a great museum! Two levels full of old western antiquities! The history of Deadwood is fantastic! We went in early fall and the weather was perfect! If you like old west history, you’ll love this museum! Something for everyone young and old! If this helps click like!

Very informative small museum. It looks like they are expanding as well. Wish the gift shop more unique items though.

Carolanne Szoke

Look everywhere -The smallest things have their stories too

Learned a lot about the black hills and south dakota history that I was unaware of. It was more impressive in person then what I saw on YouTube about it.

Vanessa Miller

Great place to visit for an overview of Deadwood's history.

Chris Varley

It's okay. Can't say much more. They have an interesting video on wild Bill

There's a lot of Kid friendly exhibits, the staff is friendly and always willing to help and give information. I highly recommend going here, they have a lot of unique curiosities in their cases!

Timothy Olson

We were surprised at the variety and quality of the items on exhibit and the manner in which they were presented. This place makes for an excellent afternoon of browsing for any member of the family. The attendant, Keith, was extremely courteous and helpful. This is the REAL Gem in the town of Deadwood.

Michael Hoffman

Interesting displays of Deadwood history and general Americana. Organization is a little haphazard.

Elizabeth Loper

This museum tells of the history of Deadwood. If your in the area its not a bad stop.

Wanda Parker

Very interesting and alot of history

ConR Ranker

There was a lot to see in a smaller space for a museum. It was nice, could spend more time looking instead of trying to see more when tired. Some museums are sooo big especially for older visitors. Items were well marked w/ timelines.

Very good exhibits and cool history

Barry Meyer

It's old charm is well laid out to tell history of Deadwood

So many awesome artifacts. The only downside was our schedule. Time permitting, I could have spent hours there. Neat interactive exhibits for guests with younger children in the basement. I learned a lot about Deadwood. A+++

Alicia Karczewski

A lot of really interesting things in here you would have never known about Deadwood

charles cleveland

Very good place to go and take the family to learn of the history of the area. As you walk up, it looks as if it is a old bank but it was a home. There is not "fee" for going in but they ask you make a donation in at least a certain amount but you can give more. As you walk around it tells you for the history of how deadwood and the surrounding areas started. Tells of things that happened all the way up to the late 80's and 90's. Had a good time with family.

Maschelle Waits

AWSOME we enjoyed it very much. An AWSOME adventure into the past of how this town started

Cassie Brydl

Lots of interesting items to see! Donation based and it's all worth it!


Always like going back ever couple months to see what's new


Cool history of the old west
