The mission of Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians. The Foundation demonstrates its commitment to this endeavor by continuing the progress on the world's largest sculptural undertaking by carving a memorial of Lakota leader Crazy Horse; by providing educational and cultural programming; by acting as a repository for American Indian artifacts, arts and crafts through the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER(R); and by establishing and operating the INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and, when practical, a medical training center for American Indians.

Korczak Ziolkowski; the sculpture was a remarkable man. He and his wife's story which lives on with their children is remarkable. The museum was great and filled with many Native American artifacts as well as Mr. Ziolkowski works. Worth while as long as you have a small group. I did not check to see if there are group rates.

I've been here several times over the years, the first time being when it was just being formed. I was so taken with the story of Korczak Ziolkowski and his dream of building a monument for one of the greatest Native Americans ever. This Polish immigrant took on a mountain to build his dream! I participated in the annual Crazy... More

The history behind this memorial is incredible. My pride for being Native American really came out. The tour guides are very helpful and knowledgeable. If you have been to Mt. Rushmore and have enjoyed that, then you will love Crazy Horse! The size of the monument will blow your mind in itself!

A truly stunning accomplishment in the making. Proves what determination can do, and how a small group of people can change the world. Great attraction!! Don't miss it! I saw it the first time 40 years ago....

Crazy Horse Monument was worth the trip to South Dakota. We had set out for Mt. Rushmore but was so much more impressed with Crazy Horse. We bought a video of the years of construction and have watched it numerous times. Would love to be around to see the finished monument. Met some very nice people who were very informative.... More

We only had one day to explore the area...so of course Mt. Rushmore was on our list. We are so glad we made time for Crazy Horse that afternoon. It was a great juxtaposition on a number of levels. The visitor center was wonderful...the art and artifacts were really interesting. Also had a great little book store. This is an... More

$11 per person or $26 for a car. Not worth it. Staff here was not pleasant and acted annoyed at everything. Got amazing pictures from the road though!

Very cool and interactive visit. I would love to come back in a few years and look at the progress made. Just to warn you though, $28/car load.

This was a terrific opportunity to see the making of what will be a fantastic monument to a displaced society. The size and scope of the project is overwhelming, especially when compared to its neighbor, Mount Rushmore. I The historical presentation was very interesting and the concept of what one man had accomplished over a long period of work was... More

Total rip off it is not even half complete - $11.00 per person to get in plus $4.00 to bus to the base - expensive
