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

The park is well laid out. You have time for each site location. Reading material supports each of the historical sites. There is a cell phone number that has a narrative of the story for each of the points of interest.

The entire experience was moving and interesting at the same time. The movie clearly showed the correct historical view and not that of the may westerns I have seen. Also, between the movie and walking the various stops demarking parts of the battle, I got a much clearer picture of what actually happened.

We watched the introduction video which was much more balanced than most movies on the subject. Then walked some of the battlefield. I must say I felt for the Indians who though they won this battle lost their lands in the end. Worth a visit if in the area.

We were very moved by our visit. Insightful accounts on the grounds, in the displays and especially in the rangers' presentations of the Native American and government perspectives on what happened here. Two different tragedies. This pluralistic presentation represents multicultural America at its best (I wish it could always be that way).

I had always wanted to visit ever since I was a child. It didn't disappoint, don't miss the ranger stories. The staff are very passionate and help bring the place to life

A look at a time in our country's history as it was on June 25, 1876 with the Indians overtaking Custer in the memorialized battle fought here. Although the Indians won that battle, they lost their traditional nomadic way of life. One can stand on Custer's Last Stand Hill and look down at the markers where the soldiers died. The... More
