If you're visiting Mt. Rushmore you HAVE to visit the Crazy Horse Memorial. The museum alone is worth the visit - some of the most amazing and beautiful artifacts I've ever seen. The completed face is stunning, and IMHO, if the monument ends up staying unfinished, it will still be a masterpiece.

Just read everyone else's reviews about how this is a complete rip off and scam. $22 to visit a gift shop? I rarely rate anything as "Terrible" on Trip Advisor - well congratulations to the Crazy Horse Memorial, because you made the list.

I went to this memorial thinking it was going to be kind of hokey. But I was so wrong! I found it very emotional. The informational movie was interesting. And the whole concept of what is to be accomplished at the site is great. I would definitely recommend taking the time to see it.

It's a great place to visit. Lot of history about the place. The epic proportion and the magnitude of this project is just remarkable. There was a laser light show at night. Didn't have time to catch it. If you have time do the scenic drive around custer state park not so far from this memorial. Truly a sight to... More

1. Def. watch the movie, the family story behind this monument is incredible. 2. Be careful when making purchases. I purchased a book and found out from the author afterward he doesn't donate any of the profits. 3. Take your time and gaze and imagine the time and effort being made to achieve this. 4. I wish we had been... More

Went to see this exhibit based on what we thought would be an amazing exhibit. Paid 11 dollars a person or 28 a car load. Went to parking lot and entered a visitor Center. Watched an inspiring film about the artist and his vision. Went outside and watched a Native American show. Thought we would be able to see more... More

The Crazy Horse Memorial is a wonderful concept and it supports a fantastic cause, but as a place to visit I found it to be much less than I expected. The carving on the mountain is gigantic, but still, after decades of work, it is just starting to look like something. The biggest part of the draw, for me, was... More

Like many others, we visited this after Mt Rushmore. It is a work in progress (for decades) and at the rate they are going, it will take decades to complete. It is a noble effort for the indigenous people and gets no government support. It has a gift shop and restaurant. To be honest, I was a little disappointed. I... More

This attraction costs $28 per car and for us, was worth it. However, if you don't wish to get the whole "experience" you can see it from the road and then turn around before going to the parking area. I have mixed feelings about it. Although I have lots of respect for the artist and family for keeping it private... More

Once in a lifetime is enough...Not sure that there is any intention on finishing the sculpture...the fee is $12 per person and then you have to pay for a bus ride to the memorial...cash grab!
