The Mammoth Site Welcomes a New Temporary Exhibit


January 31, 2020

The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, SD Inc. welcomes a new temporary exhibit, “Bison.”

“Bison” is a “traveling exhibit exploring the past, present, and future of this great North American mammal” (, 2019). This exhibit is on loan from The National Buffalo Foundation. “Bison,” according to, “tells the tragic history of this majestic animal, its rescue from near extinction, and the story of people across North America working to preserve the bison as a vibrant part of our future” (, 2019).

The temporary “Bison” exhibit will be an added educational component to the other Bison exhibits featured at The Mammoth Site as our scientists explore this species during the Ice Age and the significance these mammals have on our lives today.

The Mammoth Site will also be hosting a lecture series in conjunction with the “Bison” exhibit. We will be releasing more information about the lecture series soon.

The Mammoth Site is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. We are the only Accredited Museum in the Black Hills and one of three Accredited Museums in South Dakota.
