One of the prized exhibits at the North Dakota buffalo museum is White Cloud. White Cloud was a unique albino buffalo who lived on the premises for almost 20 years. After she passed in 2016, the museum kept her spirit alive by displaying her history along with a full body mount.

As the surrounding Great Plains area was once home to millions of American buffalo, Jamestown is the perfect location for an American buffalo museum. You can even catch a glimpse of real bison in action: a live herd of about 30 live adjacent to the property and can be seen from outside the museum or from a viewing deck within.
