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!

Highlights include:

  • JB Haggen Train
  • Potato Creek
  • Thoen Stone
  • Johnny’s Gold Nugget
  • N.C. Wyeth’s pencil sketch of Wild Bill Hickok, the Western Legend
