The Museum is proud to be the state’s first building to earn the Platinum Certification for green standards. From the wood floors, to the paint, to the outdoor landscaping, each feature of the building was carefully planned and designed.
Renovating the building and development of the land was important as it allowed us to use current structures instead of building on empty land. Reusing the structure of the building instead of tearing down was the most cost efficient for us along with cutting down on waste materials going to the landfill. This also helped us preserved a historical building in Downtown Sioux Falls.
