When driving on I90 near the Humboldt exit, you see a huge metal bull sitting up on a hill to capture your curiosity. When you exit off onto a gravel road, you drive down a lane that travels through a cow pasture. You will see...More

We had fun exploring the world of Wayne's art on the roadside. Amusing, fascinating, bizarre, twisted and outside the box! It's a must-see for anyone who loves doing something out of the ordinary. Stop and appreciate the little poems and stories that accompany his pieces...More

The driveway to get there is long, winding, and bumpy gravel. I wasn't sure if it was such a good idea to be driving it in our 1986 Barth motorhome with a motorcycle strapped to the back. I'm so glad we did. Many of the...More

Travel distance for Montrose SD to Rapid City is 321 Mi , 4 hr 17 min under normal driving conditions. Additional time should you be lured to stopping at Wall SD and the world famous Wall Drug Store.

He will and can negotiate with you. We had 5 adults and 2 kids. 2 adults said they'd hang back and he said go in for free. Whatever the charge it was nominal and worth it. GO.
