Did the tour of the on a slant village. Would definitely recommend that over going it alone, and you get to go into an additional hut if you pay for the tour, and that allows you to see all kinds of additional, old artifacts.

I knew nothing about this before I visited but was very impressed. You can walk around the various lodges which are re-creations of a real village. Guides will give you more information or you can read up on it's history and explore for yourself. This is unlike anything I've experienced before and gave another picture to the Native American history... More

We spent the first part of the day viewing the Custer house and soldiers barracks and then took the tour of the on a slant village. The village was authentic in representation of the original one.

We have visited before but our grandsons had not. It's a fascinating place but there were no tour guides available at the time we were there, we wandered around and the boys were quite impressed with the whole thing. Worth a trip.

This a great attraction to visit. There are guided tours available but we just walked freely through ourselves. It is an amazing recreation of what a village might have looked like back in the day. The attraction is free if you do not pay for a tour, but you do have to pay to enter the park.

We loved the village and the tour. The visitor center provides an excellent overview both of the village and of the fort. The constructed village provides a glimpse of what the area may have looked like when it had 100 earth lodges or more. The interior of one is furnished, giving an idea of life for the matriarch of each... More

Definitely a must see - fascinating Native American history, spanning centuries. This village was already abandoned when the Lewis and Clark expedition came through in the early 1800s.
