Chief Crazy Horse was a respected and revered Warrior among the Oglala band of the Lakota; he was a Warrior who put the needs of his People first and never gave into the coming of western civilization. He led in the warriors in the Battle of Little Big Horn, Custer's last stand. Korczak Ziolkowski brings to life the philosophy of... More

Returned here 10 years after my first visit. On first glance not much has changed but actually a lot has been removed from around the horses head. I think that this is a fantastic monument and the video with the story of the sculptor and his family is very interesting. You could spend all day in the visitor centre. I'll... More

A wonderful experience. They do a great job of educating the public. Their hands-on museum was exceptional. We enjoyed it enough that we returned again for the laser light show.

The buildings are top of the line construction. Decor is what you'd expect. Mountain looks the same as it did 15 years ago... The money seems to be going into the buildings. I refused to pay the 27 dollar entry fee and then was told in winter they take donations. Gave the 10 bucks that is about what it was... More

Although the sculpture is not complete, our family enjoyed this much more than Rushmore. The extensive collection of artifacts, art, old cabin, and workshop made it very interesting for our kids. It was educational without being stuffy too. Its a good thing to do on rainy days since much of the museum is indoor. We spent two hours here and... More

The family went to see this Memorial because we had heard good things about it. The view and work on this is amazing but the exhibits although interesting were endless and our daughter got very bored quickly. We did not take the tour up directly to the Memorial itself. Instead of paying, we did barter with the canned goods, this... More

You can spend as little as an hour on property or upwards of a full day....lots to see and do. We were limited in our time but still feel as though we got... More

Momument is remains under construction but thats the beauty. You're watching the worlds largest monument being built. Greater than the Sphinx, Pyramids or any other great structure. The progress made over the past 10 years and next 10 is phenominal. The museum is fascinating with tons of artifacts. Our guide Kim was very funny and very knowledgeable. Our kids are... More

You start at the visitor center, which is much more than that. It is a beautifully designed and built complex, and includes a number of buildings with exhibitions, theatre, souvenir shop, restaurant, etc. This part certainly is the strength of the place. However, the main feature, the carving of Crazy Horse in the mountain face, is a disappointment. While impressive... More
