Well worth the stop

This was well worth the stop. The park ranger Steve, I believe, gave a wonderful talk about the battle here.

A very nice exhibit. I enjoyed seeing the artifacts and hearing the story of the last battle Custer fought. Both things really brought the battle to life for me. It was sobering to stand on that hill and imagine the battle that took place. It was also nice that there is a tribute to the horses that fought and died... More

Our family left the Northwest Exit of YellowStone to drive to Mt. Rushmore. OMG, highway 212 is NOT for the faint at heart, only travel in daytime and make sure you have super good brakes and know how to drive in mountains. Great views, though.... So, after we left Yellowstone we stayed in billings and made our way to Battle... More

I enjoyed the history. Men who fought for the land. I enjoyed the gift shop as well. Nice exhibit. I definitely recommend. It's right off the highway.

While the battlefield site itself is intriguing, particularly due to the overall preservation of the site pretty much as is probably looked in 1876, the attitude and work ethic of the NPS employees ruined the experience for me. They "advertise" a film and a ranger presentation, but with a footnote that they may be cancelled basically for any or no... More

We encountered horrendous storms the day we visited the monument. But we still experienced enough of the venue to appreciate the historic significance of this site in our nation's history. This should be on everyone's bucket list.

We all truly loved seeing the battlefield. Be sure to see the brief movie before touring the battlefield. They have white markers placed where the soldiers fell during the battle. It is sacred ground, as far as I am concerned, and it was very moving. We were fortunate enough to hear a ranger talk outside on the patio overlooking the... More

The park entrance fee is $15 per vehicle. The visitor center is rather small but provides a fair amount of information. There is a movie you can watch, listen to a ranger or take the Apsaalooke Tour which is narrated the entire route by a member of the Crow Nation. It cost an additional $10 per person. As has been...

Gettysburg, the USS Arizona and most other battle monuments where many perished are solemn places, but there's something surreal about Little Bighorn. Maybe it's that the gravestone's are located haphazardly where the soldiers and warriors fell. Maybe it's that the monument looks down on a national cemetery. Maybe it's that my first unit as a new lieutenant was the 7th... More
