Museum of Geology
This museum explores the diverse and rich geology of the area through exhibitions that include minerals, rocks, gems, and fossils that include dinosaurs such as the Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus and Edmontosaurus; among the many other features is a Paleo-zoo that features exhibits of now extinct natives of the area, including saber-toothed cats, three-toed horses, turtles, rhinoceroses, giant pigs, camels, alligators, bird eggs, and more; there is also an extensive collection and exhibit of a great variety of minerals.
Switch your attention from ordinary tourist attraction to something else - something that'd inspire your children's curiosity about the planet we live in - good place to visit to let your imagination flow.
Very quiet, well maintained and organized surrouding. A little hard to locate because it's inside a college campus and there's literally no sign posted.
Free admission. Although I do suggest you drop a couple of bucks because this museum is not subsidized by Rapid City's cash rich tourism commission.
