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.

wonderful treasure of Indian history, artifacts and the obvious pride that the Indian guides take in their museum and history. We were traveling with our dogs as we moved out West. The staff were great and so warm and welcoming, not only to us but our dogs! A must see!

I would recommend a stop here. This memorial is well done. You will learn about many of the Native American leaders, past and present. You will learn about who Crazy Horse is, and what he represents to the Native American people. The introduction movie is very informative and educational- all of my 4 children (ages 9 to 15) liked it.... More

At first I was shocked by the 28 dollar per carload parking price but later learned this memorial is privately funded. You can't really see the scale of this project unless u pay the 4$ bus ride to the base of the mountain. It's well worth it! Take time to watch the movie and native Indian dancing exhibition. You can... More

Although some reviewers did not enjoy this attraction, our group found it quite interesting. There is a fairly large complex to explore, and it is a fascinating project with a unique history.

Start your visit by watching the film (theater is just near the info desk). It does a great job introducing the sculptor and describing this history of the progress on this work of art so far. It was appropriate for all of the ages in our party, 5-42. After touring the tasteful museum area we watched a traditional Lakota hoop... More

certainly something to see but in my opinion not worth the admission price, perhaps one day if it ever gets finished it will be worth going back.

Amazing place. You first view a short film about the history of the monument. That in itself is extremely interesting. Since it is hard to have perspective on how large the monument is, the film shows the faces of Mount Rushmore superimposed on the Crazy Horse Memorial. All the faces fit in the space occupied by Crazy Horse's face and... More

Beautiful story, stay for the video to learn how your admission fees contributed to the monument. So much to see and learn. This monument is not tribe specific but for all American Indian tribes.

Visited here on a cross-country trip. It was worth it. The video was very informative, the views breath-taking. I wish I had the time to see the laser light show they do at night, I hear it's awesome! I really enjoyed the variety of Native American artifacts, I was expecting only Sioux but they had a large variety. I purchased... More
