MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - The Prehistoric Indian Village in Mitchell is opening its remodeled Boehnen Memorial Museum on Friday.

The renovation began in the fall of 2014. It includes a new audio-visual technology wing, exhibits, gift shop, lighting and a newly configured entrance. A large teaching garden also has been added to the museum’s grounds.

Village Executive Director Cindy Gregg says the project will give visitors an expanded educational experience.

The site is a 1,000 year-old Native American village being excavated each summer by students from the University of Exeter in England and Augustana University in Sioux Falls. It’s the only active archaeological site open to the public in South Dakota.
