There was a lot more to the memorial that I had thought there to be. We paid $28 to get in (for a car with 4 passengers). There was a restaurant, a very large museum, a gift shop, a great overlook of the memorial and a 20 minute movie about the memorial. The museum was filled with tons of native... More

What dedication to the project...and led primarily by a family...definitely take the bus to get closer to the monument....will it ever be done? Who knows....but enjoy that it is going on...its kind of kool that are doing this without accepting any govt money...even though it was offered....maybe GM and the banks could learn from that...its a great tribute and worth...

Go and see the mountain. This project is so massive that Mt Rushmore is small by comparison. The best feature about this monument is no government involvement or government money. This is a project by the people and for the people. The visitor's center is amazing. Plan on spending at least a few hours to enjoy everything about the mountain... More

This is run by a non-profit corporation which uses the funds to continue the work. They do not want to take federal funds because of problems with the incompletion of Mount Rushmore under federal control. Take the tour lead by one of the interns from the college. They are informative and will give you an overview of the museums collection.... More

We decided to visit Crazy Horse at night. The cost of $28 per car load is worth it, especially when considering everything that it includes, We sowed up at 7:00 pm and ate at the Laughing Water Restaurant. The food was pretty good. I had a buffalo burger and it was tender. There is a movie, museum, large gift store,... More

Several told me that you didn't need to go in and pay to get into the monument since you can see it from the road. This may be true but then you miss out on truly viewing it and learning the history. The additional bus ride was worth it also. They take you to the base of the monument and... More

This huge size carving is partially finished but absolutely a must when visiting the Black Hills. The film at the visitors center is a great way to start. The memorial does not accept government funds so your entry fees are important to continuing the work. The face is completed. They are starting to work on his hand with an estimate... More

So glad we decided to come here! Crazy Horse doesn't get the recognition or marketing it deserves since it's a non-profit. I definitely recommend a visit and kids of all ages will enjoy the laser show. Also don't forget to grab your re-admit pass for another day. We also enjoyed dinner here!

We enjoyed the museum, taking the bus tour up to the memorial and came back that night to see the laser light show. It was very inspiring the story behind the memorial and the family that is creating it.

As other reviewers stated, $28 to get in felt like a rip-off. Then we have to pay $4/person to see the mountain close up? Felt like I was being squeezed. Once in, the observation deck was good but quite a distance away. There are shops and whatnot, where more money was spent, and lots of interesting artifacts, but I felt... More
