Mead Cultural Education Center

Now Open! 

In 2018, the Dakota Territorial Museum relocated to the Mead Cultural Education Center, a historic building on the South Dakota Human Services Center Campus. Built in 1909, this building is a great addition to the wonderful collection the museum already holds. View the “Journeying Forward: Connecting Cultures with Lewis and Clark” exhibit – an in-depth look into Corps of Discovery’s journey west. The Children’s Transportation Museum offers kids of all ages the experience of what it was like to journey to Yankton by river, wagon, train, auto, and plane.

Take a moment to watch this short video narrated by Yankton native, Tom Brokaw,  to get a better feel for the history of Yankton and the Mead Cultural Education Center.  

Admission is $8 adults, $5 Kids (3-18), $5 seniors; kids under 3 are Free.
Summer Hours (May 1-Sept. 30) Monday –Saturday 10am-6pm (closed Wednesdays) Sunday 1-5pm.
