The South Dakota Air and Space Museum, part of the museum system of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, is located in Box Elder, South Dakota, just outside the main gate of Ellsworth AFB. The South Dakota Air and Space Museum serves to educate and entertain the public. Not only does it give information about the history of U.S. Air Force aviation, it promotes South Dakota aviation history. Major exhibits include the B-1B Lancer and the B-29 Superfortress.

During the summer months, visitors can take a base bus tour for a nominal fee.[1] This includes touring a Minuteman missile Training Launch Facility as well as seeing a number of sites on the base.


The museum was co-founded by Gerald E. Teachout in 1983.[2]

  • Over 30 static display aircraft ranging from World War II to current active-duty bombers including the B-1B Lancer[3]
