Wounded Knee The Museum Will Be Closed For The 2016 Season

Wounded Knee Museum will be closed for the 2016 season.
After the fire in September 2012, The Wounded Knee Museum exhibits were reconstructed and displayed at a temporary location, but will be returning to their original location in Wall, South Dakota with an expected opening date of May 2017. We will be expanding our displays and exhibits. The Wounded Knee Museum opened in 2003 to share the events leading to the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. We appreciate your continued support, understanding and prayers during this transition of rebuilding.
We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
