Experience the signing of the Declaration of Independence like never before at America’s Founding Fathers Exhibit.
Meet the men who founded America in a building modeled after Philadelphia’s Independence Hall in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. The exhibit features a stunning life-size rendition of John Trumbull’s iconic “Declaration of Independence” painting with an accompanying light and sound show. The realistic three-dimensional sculptures, bright sparks and booming sound effects help tell the story of how 56 patriots forged the American Revolution and helped to create the freedoms that Americans enjoy centuries later.
