The North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum is the state of North Dakota's official history museum.
The original building, which was opened in 1981, is operated by the State Historical Society of North Dakota and features permanent and temporary exhibits. Expansion of the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum finished with a grand opening on November 2, 2014, coinciding with the 125th anniversary of statehood. The expansion added 127,000 square feet of collections storage, labs, and office space, doubling the total size of the museum.

It is home to the State Archives which is the official repository of state and local government records. It also houses the Johnsrud Paleontology Laboratory and the State Fossil Collection.

The museum features four galleries, two theaters, an outdoor amphitheater, cafe, a children’s play area, and museum store.[
