Our State Historical Society Sites

Ready for a historic adventure in North Dakota? Welcome to our 60 state museums and historic sites! Explore the state's past and present, and make your own connections to our significant places, landscapes, and cultures.

Please note that some sites offer interpreters, visitor centers with exhibits and stores, furnished buildings, picnic areas, and other amenities. Others lie obscurely in pastures without a monument or fencepost to mark their existence. A few sites are currently closed to visitors because of lack of accessibility, concerns about preservation, or out of respect for American Indians who hold these places sacred. If you have questions you'll find the most current visitor information here or call us at 701.328.2666.
