Family fun throughout North Dakota

Museums have long been a great place for families to spend a day laughing and learning. North Dakota has a vast network of state, regional and local museums. They present information about the region's past, present and futre. Adults and children of all ages will marvel at the State Museum at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck and its galleries dedicated to dinosaurs, Native Americans and North Dakota's history. The Dakota Dinosaur Museum in Dickinson and Pembina State Museum also have dinosaur displays and Pioneer Trails Regional Museum in Bowman takes people into the field for dinosaur digs.

The Fargo Air Museum, Dakota Territory Air Museum in Minot and Odegaard School for Aerospace Sciences in Grand Forks are for those interested in aviation; The Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center near Williston tells of life at the confluence of two important rivers, while the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown has a herd on live bison, including rare white albino bison.

Sports is always a big family activity, even if it's just sitting in a sun-baked stadium or ice arena. The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks play baseball in the summer, while North Dakota State football takes charge in the fall and North Dakota hockey in the winter.

If you're wondering where to start and what to do in North Dakota, ask yourself this question: What does your family like to do? No matter what the answer, we've got a North Dakota experience your family will love.
