Strap on your thinking cap and help Deadwood History solve the Mystery at the Snoozeum – an overnight program at the Days of '76 Museum. Explore the field of forensic science, use deductive reasoning to come to conclusions, and work with fellow detectives to help crack the case and figure out who shot Wild Bill Hickok in a life-size game of Deadwood Clue. Participants should bring a sleeping bag and pillow, an overnight bag with pajamas, a change of clothes, a toothbrush, and toothpaste. Children will take part in activities throughout the museum, and everyone will sleep in the Mary Adams Room.

The program is co-sponsored by Deadwood History, Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Bill Haas, The William Karl and Laura L. Haas Educational Endowment, Black Hills Pioneer, Deadwood Gulch Gaming Resort, Marco’s Pizza, Spearfish Chamber of Commerce, and The Walter and Francis Green Trust.


We inspire the global community by preserving and celebrating the cultural heritage of Deadwood and the Black Hills in the context of the American West through exceptional exhibits, innovative educational programs and access to extensive collections in unique settings.
