Take some time in our comfortable and spacious Wells Fargo Theater and watch a museum movie on our large 22’ x 28’ screen with stereo-quality sound. The Wells Fargo Theater turns the always entertaining Journey Museum and Learning Center into a virtual museum and takes you to worlds that you may not know yet through its museum movies.

Don’t miss out on an opportunity to learn about various pieces of not only Black Hills history, but Native American culture and other natural history through these short, though educational, museum movies. They are sure to hold the attention of kids and adults alike and are short enough to hold the attention of any young child in your group.


Daily schedules are subject to change. Stop by our Visitor Services desk or give us a call at (605) 394-6923 for specific show times.
