  • This was just a lucky stop for us. The museum is on the grounds of the college in Chadron. It is small and a little hard to find but we got directions from a student and found it easily enough...  more »

  • Had a tour of the campus which included a walkthrough of the Mari Sandoz Heritage Center. The attendant was very energetic and entertaining. They are working on some wonderful improvements. The displays were very interesting and the layout was easy to navigate.
  • Knowledge of Mari by the staff was super. Enthusiasm bubbled from the interpretive staff.
