Your Family Will 'Dig" the Mammoth SiteFlag review
This should be part of every family's visit to the Black Hills! A fascinating tour of the only Mammoth Dig in the world where both the Colombian Mammoth and the Woolly Mammoth have been found. Begin with a short movie which gives a great overview of the history - this will come in handy when you wander the site on your own after your tour. This is a REAL, ongoing archaeological dig. You can spend as much time in the site as you wish and, if there are 'diggers' at work, you can ask them questions. The attached museum and ability to talk with archaeologists as they work in the lab add wonderful education to the expereince.
Tips for Families
Kids can do a Junior Dig. You will want to reserve your spots ahead of time as these fill up fast.
