Admission to Tatanka: Story of the Bison
Located just one mile North of Deadwood, South Dakota, Tatanka: Story of the Bison is a unique display that pays tribute to the beasts that once wandered the Great Plains. This attraction was founded by Kevin Costner and is his way of celebrating the American Bison and western culture as well as educating visitors about the historical significance of bison.
When visiting Tatanka, take your time exploring via a self-guided tour. You will see 14 larger than life bronze sculptures of bison being pursued by three Native American riders, Dances with Wolves movie costumes, and Lakota interpretive presentations. The presentations last for about 90 minutes. Most visitors spend about two to three hours at Tatanka.
There is a gift shop and snack bar on site as well.
