By creating a pawn shop and museum the footfall must be greatly increased. The display of clocks at the rear, including some great cuckoo clocks is really impressive.

I was expecting to find this incredible store after reading all the great reviews online. But I have to admit that I was underwhelmed. It is basically a nice pawn shop that has some interesting things for sale.

I was a bit confused and not sure what parts of the store was the Pawnseum. This is a gun shop, a clock shop, and who knows what wrapped into one. But there do seem to be a number of exhibits to check out as...More

We have visited Pawn Stars shop in Vegas so thought this might be interesting. It is a downtown shop (ample and free parking) that is larger and much more attractive, organized, and friendly than Pawn Stars shop. The clerk was welcoming, explaining the store layout...More

Not sure why they advertise in this way. It's an upscale pawn shop, apparently focusing on guitars and guns, with a large selection of grandfather clocks. There are a very few exhibits of historical artifacts from the area. It's free to wander through.

This store is a pawn shop with a small museum inside. Michael Jackson 's glove is there and the smallest dog in the world. They also have great prices on their jewelry.

Staff that are really nice and point out exhibits of interesting stuff. There is real pawn that you can purchase but the exhibits have a lot of cool items.

This is an upscale pawnshop that includes exhibits of interesting regional historical items. The staff are welcoming and don't bother you if you are there just to view and browse. A nice experience. Nice place to visit when touring downtown Rapid City.
