The janeowit and myself checked out our very first museum pass (thanks, Macys!) this weekend. Of course, my library card caused the machine to make a disapproving noise because I haven't used it in 7 years. In the end, they let me have a museum pass. Yay! Interestingly, the passes to the FREE Zoo were all checked out.
Anyway, the Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life was our destination. Normal admission price is $6.50. We were led on a guided tour of the Dakota exhibits. You can do some pretty nifty stuff with buffalo. Anybody want a canteen?
After a walk through the farm area, we were treated to a tour of Ye Olde House. There was a very enlightening poem on one of the walls about the life of a woman. The person leading this tour really needed to read the museum's own signs and pamphlets. She generally didn't know the answers to questions.
There was also a one-room grassy dug out house thing at some point. That was back when you would sleep sitting up so as to not catch pneumonia and die.
Re-visit?: Probably not for full admission price.
