Rapid City's The Journey Museum turned a profit in 2016. The Rapid City Journal reports this is the first time that has happened in five years. The Journey had grown memberships by 30 percent to 597, while nearly 41,000 people visited in 2016, a nine percent increase over the previous year. The Journey still relies on the city to contribute about half of its budget, though it is estimated that every dollar spent on The Journey produces four dollars in tourism revenue.
