Yes, everything is a re-creation, but there are a number of artifacts used by the Custers here. I especially liked the General's writing desk! We always bring out-of-town guests here, at least those who are interested in history, and I encourage any locals who haven't seen the Custer House to do so. When you go, imagine that you got there... More

A true step back in time. Tour guides dress up as calvary men and treat you as they would in the 1700s. The house had a few original artifacts, and is decorated to the time period.

Wonderful historical fun in the park with plenty to do. Different events during the year--including Christmas decorations and Halloween fun. Well with the time.

So much history. Loved the fact that the guides are in authentic uniform and spoke in the present as 1885 once we entered the house.

Taking a living history approach, the guides for the Custer home bring the past to life. We enjoyed developing a deeper understanding of Custer and his family and their life on the frontier. The home includes a few artifacts that belonged to the Custers themselves. The guides provide great context for the furnishings in the home both for the Custers... More

Informative and good friendly tour guides that really get everyone involved. It is a recreation of the home with some original pieces that feels so genuine as if it was just yesterday they were there

Will take you back in time to another time in history.. Completely restored and just as the Custer family lived in it. Always good going to Historical places to do some homework. The guides are excellent and know their history but get into it more when people ask questions.

The house advertised on billboard and travel brochures does not exist. The house you will see is one that is down the street from where the actual house was. It burned down many years ago. The tour shows you a house "like" he lived in. What is really disappointing is there are no pictures of him or his family or... More

Really enjoyed going back to the late 1800's to see how a military general and his family lived. The home was very cool inside on a hot day and the antiques were kept in perfect shape! Dressed in Civil War costuming, the tour guides were great. Highly recommend this 1/2 hour tour within the Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park.
