The Museum of Geology and Paleontology
You will discover the earth's deepest secrets... fossils that document the dinosaurs and rock formations that guard the gold.
Begin in the abyss, a star-studded darkness representing billions of years of unrecorded time. Emerge from this vast emptiness to discover a monumental geologic cross section of the Black Hills that shows how this region was formed over the course of 2.5 billion years. Touch the bone of a dinosaur that once roamed this region.
