Powerfull site and story. The addition of the granite stones for the first americans is telling, the circle not so much. Best to go when one of the NPS interpretive staff is giving tours, they are pros. Good gift shop, HQ needs to spend money on the exhibits.

We have always wanted to see where Custer and his men lost their lives in the so-called "Indian Wars." This beautiful, solemn, hill with a 360 degree view of the Montana prairie is an incredibly sacred place. Both the museum and the slide show tell a very balanced story of how these two cultures clashed and the price they both... More

Just what really did happen here. Read all the different interpretations you want...I suspect everyone comes away wondering just what really did happen. Not so much troop movements, (yes, lots of maps of who was where and where the backup came from and most importantly, where it DIDN'T) But I left thinking that perhaps Custer and his troops weren't really...

Go see where some of the great history of the west took place. Native American tour guide was excellent! She gave the facts in a wonderful non biased narrative. Try and imagine yourself back in this vast area as a soldier or warrior with no phones and no outside help.

I hadn't originally planned to visit Little Bighorn on my 16-day journey through the American northwest. However, I'd heard that it was not far from my planned route. Since this was Memorial Day, it seemed like a most appropriate place to visit. This visit was indescribable, seeing the many markers where soldiers had fallen and imagining how many Sioux must’ve...

If you have any interest in the battle of Little Bighorn you need to come here to really understand what happened that day. Reading is fine, and watching movies, but you need to see the terrain to grasp how events unfolded. And you need to take time and make use of the resources available, otherwise it will just look like... More

I was completely underwhelmed by this National Monument. The visitor's center was not very engaging. The outdoor area was better, and I found it to be more interesting. We were there in January (our fault), and the weather was cold. Even so, I was dressed for the weather and we just walked around for about 1/2 hour outside. I was... More

We went many years ago and they have really improved the site. The visitor's center is outstanding and be sure and watch the excellent movie. Short walk up to the Last Stand site and they have added a wonderful Indian Memorial for the tribes that fought there. Lots of information. They have white headmarkers in multiple places on the hill... More

We visited in July 2014 and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire park! Make sure to use the phone tour, it's so informative! Definitely recommend visiting if you enjoy historical sites.

Excellent movie in the visitor center introduces the events of that time, day and aftermath. Chilling, moving, sobering history that heretofore was just glorified, misleading one-sided military action in the movies. Have read and watched several good History Channel programs on the events as they have been able to determine actually happened. Surprising revelation when on the site is the... More
