National Buffalo Museum

The mission of the North Dakota Buffalo Foundation (NDBF) is to foster awareness of the cultural and historical significance of the North American bison. By operating the National Buffalo Museum, maintaining a live bison herd, and conducting educational programs, the NDBF fulfills this mission; plays a vital role in local, state, and national tourism; and helps to promote the bison industry. Together, the National Buffalo Museum and bison herd contribute to the distinctive character of Jamestown, the "Buffalo City".

A fantastic little museum! I loved watching the herd out back.

Some roadside attractions off of 94 are underwhelming, but this one is worth the detour! It hits all the right buttons with equal amounts of information, kitsch & fun. It is actually 3 attractions in one- the Buffalo Museum, the Frontier Village & the worlds largest buffalo sculpture- that's a lot of roadside bang for your buck! The buffalo museum itself is nicely curated and very informative, I think it's the perfect introduction to the history of the buffalo in America before you head farther west and see some for yourself!

My family and I live there for few months many years ago in 2009... so sad I don't have to much pictures from there.... I don't know if the white buffalo is still there but we are 🍀 to have the experience to see one
