Bison – Ancient. Massive. Wild.
Head on down the road to see us! May 24 – July 27, 2019.
This nationally touring exhibit explores the significance of the bison from pre-history, to their relationship with the Plains Indians, near extinction, and current iconic status. As you visit this exhibit, you explore the significance of bison in the cultures of Plains Indian peoples – particularly as a resource for food, clothing, shelter and tools.
Book your group tours for all ages. Families and small groups always welcome. Open 7 days a week or special hours with advanced request. Educational programming available.
Bison is a North American species whose story stretches from Plains Indian hunters to entrepreneurial industrialists to dedicated conservationists to today’s producers and enthusiasts.
