The Dunn County Historical Museum showcases the rich history of the American West. Spend a day viewing historical exhibits, including an old-fashioned log cabin, one-room schoolhouse, first bank of Dunn County, and a weather-beaten homesteader shack. Learn about Knife River flint. Listen to the calls of the meadowlarks, finches, and Canada geese. Draw in the aromas of sage, pine, and fresh dew bonding with the cool fresh air of North Dakota.
Wake up to a Badlands sunrise. Spot a bird species that you've always wanted to see. Show your kids what it's like to be an explorer. It can happen in North Dakota. When it does, you can proudly say,
"I AM LEGENDARY."

On May 19, 2020 we made the difficult
decision to not open the museum for the
summer as originally hoped. The safety of our visitors and our staff is extremely important and we did not feel we could open and have the necesssary protective
measures in place.
We reviewed the situation later in the summer
and felt we needed to remain closed.
We are hopeful we will be able to open again
in May of 2021. We have receieved a grant from
the North Dakota Community Foundation- Killdeer Area
for a sanitizing sprayer, and proceeds from this year's raffle will go towards other supplies and equipment needed to safely reopen.
Sadly, this meant also cancelling our annual
Cream Can Supper and Silent Auction.
However, we are still had our Fundraising Raffle..
Drawing was September 25th.
