The Redlin Art Center is a must stop. If you are want to see an outstanding collection by a great painter tour the gallery and take home some memorable art from the gift shop. We stop every time we are in Watertown. It is close to I-29 and easy off and on to break up the trip.

I remember going on a school trip as a kid when the Redlin Art Center first opened up. After a 1o year hiatus from going inside, i've now been back twice in the last month. Its amazing how real the work Terry did looks, and considering its a free attraction, and one with some much culture built in it, its... More

Have been here a few times and enjoy each visit. Always something to see that I missed other times. Would recommend to everyone, even if not a big fan of art paintings.

I've been through the Redlin Art Center on several occasions,but in October I took my sisters from Minneapolis on a tour as they heard it is a must do when visiting our great city. They were impressed with Terry Redlin's work, and we really took our time enjoying all of the details in his work and the progressive stories some... More

We stopped at Redlin Art Center on our way to Minnesota. It was a on the spot decision because we were fueling up and decided to pop over. We stopped for a few hours which was okay but really should allow more time. What a wonderful story of South Dakota put into paintings. Visually pleasing! Very relaxing and the outdoor... More

Every time I visit Watertown with principles, I take them there. I see in their eyes the same wonder and appreciation I had the first time I visited. Plus there is a set of pictures that still bring tears to my eyes even though I have seen them over ten times. A joy to experience the talent of Terry Tedlin.... More

The settings and backdrops for Terry's art are all Norman Rockwell picturesque and better!!! He was one of the very best wildlife and hometown artists to put paint to canvas. Any fan of this style of artistry would be in awe of the display in this center. Many of the pieces are available in print and other media for purchase... More

We have toured this wonderful Art Center several times. It is always wonderful and never gets old. The park area is lovely and there are picnic spots to just enjoy the outdoors areas. The central pavilion can be rented for a special event and is popular for wedding receptions. The Art Galleries and parking are always free. Mr. Redlin's work... More
