At Dakota Discovery Museum, we consistently strive to offer programs that engage and educate children, while allowing them to learn about history in a fun environment. We don’t believe that history has to be dry or boring, rather we strive to help history come alive for children, while instilling a passion for learning more about the great stories of the past!
