A lot of info about the annual parade, "Days of '76", early, influential people, and of course, the native Lakota people. Also a good chunk about the rodeo which I'm not too big on. Myfavorite parts were the gun room and the old-style convenience store....More

There are a number of displays on rodeos, Indian culture, and the old west, but much of this museum is based on the yearly event of the same name. Lots of information on that, and interesting in that regard, but I wouldn't really recommend a...More

We walked to this museum from the other end of town along a path that followed a creek.The staff were friendly, made us feel the slow town pace. Diverse history represented. the two big horn "greeters" were awesome. We took two hours,could have stayed longer.
Thank you for your wonderful review of the Days of '76 Museum! We appreciate your positive comments about the staff, the history of the museum, and the big horn greeters.
We got to the museum at 4:30 and they close at 5:00. When we asked if we could see everything before 5, the employee said we could take as long as we wanted. There is a large selection of wagons and carts and a decent...More
Thank you for visiting the Days of '76 Museum. We appreciate your feedback, especially regarding the Visitor Services Associate who welcomed you to stay as long as you wanted. Customer service is everything in Deadwood. Glad you enjoyed the museum.
If you're into rodeos, the history of western South Dakota and surrounding states or just like items from the old west, this is a must see. Definitely combine it with a visit to the Adams Museum, Adams House and Mount Morriah Cemetery.
Thank you for your great review of the Days of '76 Museum, and recommending visitors also tour Mt. Moriah, the Adams Museum, and Historic Adams House. We appreciate your great comments and hope to see you in Deadwood again!
