The Mammoth site does an excellent job of interepting the developmental and archaelogical history of their site. Our children, ages 4-10, have made this a "must see" stop along our vacation route to Yellowstone every other year. The staff members are very helpful, the tours are well planned, and the up close and personal feel of the site makes for a great learning opportunity. I think most anyone would be pleased with their experience at the site.

As a fellow museum professional, the Mammoth Site is quite a wonderful place to visit. The site itself is very interesting, and the exhibits are of high quality. The archaeological component was nicely displayed and the interpretation through labels was also well done. Well presented for a general audience

Since I work in a natural history museum rather similar to the Mammoth Site, I admit I was a bit disappointed in the interpretation of the fossil bed. Our tour guide did a terrific job, but the tour was very scripted and since he was only a high school student, he could not adequately answer my more technical questions.

We are from WA state. My family toured the Mammoth Site while on vacation. We came back a few years later with our granddaughter who was from Portland, OR. The children, all girls learned a lot and we enjoyed our experience. We will be making a point of returning multiple times over the coming years to see what is new. I have encouraged a college student who is majoring in archeology, to sign up to work on the Mammoth Site in the summer. A couple of days spent in Hot Springs should include a dip in Evans Plunge heated from warm water springs. A visit of Angustora Reservoir south of town with fishing, picnics, boating and sandy beaches to enjoy. To the north of town is Wind Cave Natl Park. A visit to the Mammoth Site will just add to the fun and educational opportunities in the southern Black Hills. The Hot Springs community is a great supporter of this nonprofit, and we all must help keep it viable with our financial support for others to enjoy and be awed by it. The Mammoth Site is like none other for education.
