This is Black Hills’ oldest history museum. It was a gift to Deadwood from its former mayor W. E. Adams. It is one of the most popular western museums. The exhibits are plenty and very interesting too. The artefacts from the past give you a taste of how regular life was back then in the legendary times. The museum has 3 floors, each laden with baffling information. The display panels are detailed and the tour guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If you are a western movie fan, this place will ensure you that those stories exist outside of fiction!

Great pieces from Deadwood's notorious history...also, the largest gold nugget found in the area!
It wasn't that great but a history person may enjoy it.
Amazing! We happened upon the Adams museum and were stunned by what is inside. Artifacts and history on all 3 levels. Everyone we were traveling with was amazed of what was inside the museum.
Great collection. Really enjoyed how most display cases had notebooks of info to go along with it.
Free (donations recommended) attraction that shows a lot of cool pieces of history from the area.
