The Children's Museum of South Dakota is located right there, just off I-29, in Brookings. And the name maybe just a little misleading because, while it's a Children's Museum, dad and mom (and grandpa and grandma) will have a great time, too!

The museum was established by Dale Larson. He and his wife Pat always believed that play is learning and learning is fun! It was through the Larson Foundation that the Children's Museum of South Dakota was born. You can read the whole interesting story here.

What's all included in the Children's Museum of South Dakota? Well, way too much to list here, but all of it includes these ingredients: Imagination, Discovery, and Creativity. And there are exhibits and activities for every age group, from toddlers to 'ol Grandpas and Grandma's.

In other words, the entire family!

Whether it's part of your family vacation, church or school groups, or just a day out with the young 'un's, you can't miss the Children's Museum of South Dakota. Take a little video tour:

Here aredetails on the hours and admission. Oh, and if you need directions, here they are.

And finally, don't plan on just dropping in for an hour or so. Your kids will want to spend the day, and so will you!
