About

Welcome to the Old Courthouse Museum! Your event deserves a special setting, and we welcome and encourage the use of this unique and beautiful public and historic treasure. Made of local Sioux Quartzite, construction was completed in 1893 and for many years, the building served as a courthouse and public offices. Becoming a museum in 1974, it is now the perfect event venue with something for everyone; children and adults alike.

With its hardwood floors, gorgeous woodwork, detailed paintings, stained glass windows, soft lighting, and grand staircase, the Old Courthouse Museum provides a unique atmosphere -inside and out- for any occasion.

The public areas at the Old Courthouse Museum available for special events are the Courtroom, Law Library, first floor hallway, and outdoor cobblestone Reardon Plaza. Special events include weddings, receptions, meetings, dinners, photo/ film shoots, parties, etc.

Floor plans and size and capacity figures are provided to help you determine the space that best suits your needs.

For further assistance and information about the Siouxland Heritage Museums, please call (605) 367-4210 ext 3016 or email tseiner@minnehahacounty.org.

    Incredible!

    We were so happy we went with the Old Courthouse Museum. The building is gorgeous! Staci was amazing to work with. Was super responsive and worked with our schedule. I knew we had nothing to worry about with her in charge.

    Old Courthouse Museum's reply:

    Thank you! It was a pleasure working with you as well! I am glad that the day went well, even with the rain. :) They say that rain on your wedding day will bring riches. Hope that rings true for you two!
    Best wishes to you and Cody!

    A hidden gem in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls. This beautiful historic building was the stage for our perfect day. Not only does the venue offer a perfect setting for beautiful wedding portraits, it also was the perfect touch of class and ambiance for our vows. The event coordinator was very kind, on point, and professional. The price point was amazingly reasonable. I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat.
