We are always in need of individuals willing to act as South Dakota museum tour guides, assist with research or conservation of artifacts, fix or clean, help with particular projects or plan special events. If you love history – or are just looking for something different and interesting to do! – we would love to visit about ways you can help at HHM&A. No experience is required and we will be happy to provide on-site training in your area of interest. Whether you can give a couple of hours each week or one day every once-in-awhile, we will accommodate your schedule as best we can!


As a self-sustaining, non-profit organization, we rely totally on admission fees, memberships and donations in order to operate. We appreciate any and every donation to the work we do, as the collection is vast and the needs are many. Please join us in helping this museum continue the mission “To preserve, educate and foster appreciation for the diverse natural and cultural history of the greater Freeman area, settled largely by Germans from Russia in the 1870s."
