Owner description: Located only minutes from Mount Rushmore in the town of Keystone in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, the National Presidential Wax Museum is an exciting patriotic experience for the whole family. Meet over 100 lifelike wax figures, including all 45 U.S. presidents, all depicted in stunning visual recreations of iconic moments in U.S. presidential history. Explore the stories behind the faces with a self-guided audio tour narrating the context and history of each scene. Witness the intricacies of the wax sculpture process with a seven-minute theater video showcasing the museum’s ten artists as they create America’s leaders out of wax and bring a vision to reality. Play the part of the White House press secretary and give a speech from a teleprompter podium in a spot-on recreation of the White House press briefing room! The National Presidential Wax Museum also boasts a huge gift shop filled with unique and quirky gifts that can’t be found anywhere else in the Black Hills.

I took my 10-year-old son to this museum. Every thing was done very well. The audio tour was very informative. And the gift shop had a lot of great things.

We went to the National Presidential Wax Museum on an extremely hot day in July. The air conditioning was extremely welcome! The museum is laid out with all the presidents in order. You walk through at your leisure and listen to facts about each President and significant events that happened during their term(s).

Located in the historic mining town of Keystone, This is a true and accurate representation of those we have elected to lead.

While one may like some and dislike some, all served to the best of their ability.

The handheld device that is provided gives each the opportunity to hear what is an excellent history lesson.

The exceptional scene of Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull & Gall provide an in depth view from the original owners of The Black Hills.

Spend time, read and learn

Thank you so much for your positive review! We love including a little of the local Native American history, as American history wouldn't be such without them!

The presentation over the handheld device was very interesting and informative. I did not think the images of many of the modern presidents was accurate. But, enjoyed the activity.
