One of the locals was chanting and walking kids through some traditional dances. The Native American art and jewelry was neat to see. We brought a could rocks home as souvenirs. The sculpture will be amazing when they are able to make more progress on it. Pretty neat attraction with a great story and video.

$28 gets you in and it's worth it! The story is amazing. you can easily spend all day looking at everything. Dining option is pretty good too. If you go in June or September, check on the date that allows you to hike up to the top. Those are the only two times a year. It's about a 6 mile... More

There is a museum, history of the memorial as well as Indians from theatres, the 6th grandson of Sitting Bull with his son and grandson put on performance fir donations while we were there. They are also doing an Indian university on the grounds.

We spent a couple of hours at Crazy Horse and we're glad we went. We took the bus tour ($4/ea) to the bottom of the monument and we walked through the museum and grounds in addition to watching the movie. Definitely a dedicated tribe and sculptor and his family. Perspective and history was appreciated.

There is a great view from the road of this mammoth memorial which was begun in 1948. There is a visitors centre, gift shop and museum but we felt the best view was from the road. Being slightly cynical we feel it will never be finished as it's more a money spinner now than on completion. Just our view and... More

Ambitious and impressive effort underway. As time passes, one hopes that additional efforts will be made to strengthen the educational tools to inform visitors (Native Americans, immigrant Americans and visiting foreigners) more clearly and systematically about the vast collection of Native American art and artifacts at hand. Also, in addition to the video presentation about the sculpting effort and challenges,... More

Crazy Horse is very impressive memorial. This is my first visit in 9 years and the progress is noticeable. The project began in 1948 and the sheer enormity of it awe inspiring. The museum houses many Native American artifacts, offers insights to the construction process and is truly a magnificent undertaking. It is only 11 miles from Mount Rushmore, an... More

Have seen programs about this but to be there is amazing. To see the working and all the time spent in making the monument There is a bus you can take that gets you closer to the monument .well worth the $4 they charge.

We spent an evening watching the movie, touring the museum, and roaming the grounds as the sun set on the Crazy Horse Memorial. The learning aspect of Crazy Horse Memorial is imperative to understand it's historical and current significance. Funded only through private donations and free enterprise, we returned the next morning to become "Story Tellers" and take a van... More

First, make sure you see the video, the family history and how it all got started is totally amazing! The Native American museum is beautiful and we could have spent hours there. The monument is HUGE I hope it gets finished so we can see it someday. Overall, much better than Mt Rushmore & worth the extra money.
