Cass County Museum Opens at Bonanzaville

Posted: Updated:

It's an exciting day out at Bonanzaville as the brand new Cass County Museum opens today. The museum focuses on three main time periods of Cass County life, from the Native American era in the 1500's to the homestead movement during the 1800's, all the way up to modernization in the 1900's.

Bonanzaville has over 400,000 artifacts and is one of the largest historic collections in the state of North Dakota. Some of which hasn't been able to be displayed for decades until now.

Andrew Nielsen, the museum curator, says the museum also has some very rare and unique artifacts on display for the public. "Some of our Native American collection is extremely rare there's only a handful of other objects similar to these that exist. Some of which are held in the collection of the Smithsonian or other art museums throughout the country."

Ribbon cutting for the museum will take place tonight from 4:30-6:00. The public is welcome to attend the event free of charge.

Season's of operation and admission for Bonzaville are:

Nov. – April: Village is closed, museum is open $5 for adults, $3 for kids

May – October: Village and museum are open $10 for adults, $5 for kids
