Hollis Nappen honors his wife with a $400,000 expansion gift


The Dakota Kids Treehouse at the ND Heritage Center and State Museum is an exhibit aimed to introduce young children to the museum world. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while in this area.

Located on the upper level above the Missouri River Event Center, this exhibit invites children to discover and explore North Dakota life, past and present. The Treehouse features a child-sized tree house for children to climb into for a bird’s-eye view of the area before sliding down to a variety of exhibits including a bank, fire station, steamboat, locomotive, flight simulator and more.
