Annual Steam Outage

The 2021 Steam Outage is scheduled July 16 - 26.

Each year in mid-late July South Dakota State University conducts maintenance on the university's campus-wide steam pipe system used to control heating, ventilation and cooling in buildings including the art museum. During this "Steam Outage" period, the museum will be extra cool and a bit noisy due to humidifiers used to ensure preservation of artwork. You're welcome to visit but we recommend you bring along a light sweater or jacket. 


We observe South Dakota state holidays and will be closed on holidays including: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, Juneteenth Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Native American Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, as well as Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

January - March: The Museum is closed on Sundays.

Upcoming holiday closures are posted on our home page. Please call ahead for more information: 605-688-5423.
