Wow, so disappointed. Should have known something was up when the parking attendant sings its praised by telling us "more than 20 Indians are here right now!" I wanted to ask him why he thought people from India were so attracted to the monument? It is not a state or national park, it is a for profit, and it shows.... More

The 6.2 mile hike to see the monument was amazing. The view and seeing the detail of the sculpture up close was awesome. The walk up was moderately strenuous through the woods but the walk down on the road was easy. The museum/welcome center is extensive. The movie is worth watching to get a glimpse of the Ziolkowski family's commitment... More

This is in the works. After an hour at Mt Rushmore we drove by here on the way back to the motel. Just looked from a distance outside the park. There is supposed to be a fun laser light show at night, but we didn't feel like coming back. Also the price seemed steep for what it was.

This is one of those attractions that delivers more than promised. The history, the family, the Native Americans and the concept are wonderful. It's very hard to put into words...more the kind of place you must EXPERIENCE. This is a privately funded by donation place with 7 of the 10 children continuing to live and work there. I highly recommend... More

We've visited Crazy Horse Memorial before but had never seen the laser light show. After a day of touring, we came about an hour before the show started and are so thankful we were there. The music and the narration coupled with the lighting were a definite trip highlight. We viewed from the upper parking deck but most tourists were... More

Don't know exactly what we expected. This monument will take decades to complete - if it is ever completed. Why complete it, it's a cash cow just as it is! After you look up at the carved face of Crazy Horse, take a pic or two, then what? Viola, they have a gift shoppe! And that shoppe (note the spelling)... More

To truly understand the history if the West you need to learn about how the native Indians were treated. The Crazy Horse Monument is being continued by the family of the original sculptor without any government funding. It must be seen to be believed.

Ongoing artwork. Amazing The museum was very informative and the artwork around the area was great. Nice place to see and a must to take the bus trip down to the Monument for closer viewing and historical lesson

At first I balked at the $11 per person charge. After being through this attraction, I learned more about that $11 charge. This place is not federally funded so it depends on donations and this entry charge. So worth it. This monumental task of carving out the mountain to depict Chief Crazy Horse on his horse is not close to... More

Great history and art displayed throughout the museum...Bittersweet feelings! Entrance is a bit too high$$$, but overall, it is a great memorial and worth the visit.
