Welcome to the Museum of Visual Materials in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It is our mission to be a place for people to learn, play, create, and celebrate. Our vision is to contribute to a positive, thriving, and strong community.
The Museum's building has had a few changes since it was built in 1887. Originally, it was the Consolidated Tank Line Company, then was bought out by the Standard Oil Company. When Standard Oil moved to a larger building it then became Midland/Seagram’s Distributing Co. In 2005, our founder, Dr. Rose Faithe, purchased the building and created the Museum of Visual Materials. We are proud to be registered as South Dakota’s first LEED platinum certified green building. We are a private nonprofit organization that is reaching out to the community to bring you a museum unlike anything you’d expect.
The museum has many great feature to highlight along with its green renovations. To learn more about the LEED Certification for our Platinum building, take the tour and learn about each green feature in each area.
We are a private event venue. Plan your next event at the Museum of Visual Materials!
When we are not booked for an event, we occupy the space with low cost arts & crafts classes for the community.
Classes and Activities are held frequently for the Sioux Falls community and visitors. Visit our Classes and Activities page to see which classes you can get signed up for.
