It's free admission and interesting history. There is a volunteer who seems to know a lot the area and is very friendly and helpful with answering your questions.

The premises house several historical buildings from different eras in the town's history, and it is a free historical attraction in Bismarck. Park nearby, come here and read the info plaques, and go have a cup of coffee at a nearby downtown cafe.

Enjoyed the do-it-yourself, free tour reading the placards. History abounded in the early settlement of Bismarck: the Northern Pacific Locomotive #2164, the Weather Station and the first non-Catholic church. A free museum inside the weather station.

I was a nice visit to the begining of Bismarck with the church and a little museum. I was free to visit and there was a guide when we were there.
