Adams Museum

In 1930 pioneer businessman W.E. Adams founded the Adams Museum in downtown Deadwood with the purpose of preserving and displaying the history of the Black Hills. He donated the building to the City of Deadwood and placed the operation of the organization in the hands of a board of directors. The board oversaw the collecting of some of the Black Hills’ greatest treasures including Potato Creek Johnny’s gold nugget, beloved American illustrator N.C. Wyeth’s pencil sketch drawing of Western legend Wild Bill Hickok, the mysterious Thoen Stone record of the Ezra Kind party’s discovery of gold in the Hills in the 1830s and a one-of-a-kind plesiosaur (marine reptile). In 1989 South Dakotans gave Deadwood a second renaissance by voting to allow limited stakes gaming with tax proceeds benefiting historic preservation. This breathed new life into the Adams Museum, giving the City of Deadwood and the Adams Museum board the opportunity to hire a professionally trained museum staff with the goal of restoring the building, instituting professional collections management practices, creating engaging and educational exhibitions and developing community based public programming. In 2005, the Adams Museum underwent a major renovation of the then 75-year-old building to address safety issues, make the facility more accessible to people with disabilities and to improve public programming spaces. The Adams Museum is wheel-chair accessible. In addition to exhibits on all three levels, a western history bookstore is included on the main floor and restrooms and a meeting room are located on the lower level.

Big Thunder Gold Mine

Big Thunder Gold Mine has recaptured the excitement and romance of this bygone era. Find yourself traveling back in time as you tour the authentic 1890's gold mine and learn about the mining experience from knowledgable guides. The mining museum is a replica of the Tykoon Gold Mill (Custom Mill) built in 1895 on the Big Thunder property. The museum is Free and contains the largest collection of mining equipment in the Black Hills.  You will see a stamp mill, a bell crusher and jaw crusher, winches, blacksmith equipment and a display of an original assay office. The mill houses original ore bins, elevator equipment and tools that were used in the mines in the Keystone area.  Professional guides describe the process that miners used to extract the gold from the gold ore. The mill contains thousands of artifacts that have been found as three working mines in the Black Hills were reclaimed and torn down. 

The Journey Museum & Gardens

The Journey Museum takes you on an incredible trek through time, from the violent upheaval that formed the mystical Black Hills over 2.5 billion years ago to the continuing saga of the Western Frontier. The Journey Museum brings together four major prehistoric and historic collections to tell the complete story of the Western Great Plains - from the perspective of the Lakota people and the pioneers who shaped its past, to the scientists who now study it.  Discover where dinosaurs lie buried beneath the prairie soil; learn why the Sioux call their sacred Black Hills the "Center of the Universe"; experience the hardships of the homesteaders as they settled the formidable wilderness.
