We were traveling with friends. One of them is a huge history buff and wanted to visit the Battlefield and Monument. Not sure what to expect at first but after driving and walking around, I was so very glad we stopped here. It was a very inspiring place, to see the markers through out the battlefield, and reminded me of... More

Part of the battlefield. Do allow a minimum of two hours (combined) for monument and battlefield. Helpful staff.

Learned a lot about what really happened here. The audio tour was well worth the money. You have to purchase the disc, and it guides you around the battlefield, explaining everything as you drive around. You can get out and explore as much as you wish. Ranger talk also was very interesting. Most people don't know what really happened and... More

My husband saw a show on TV about this and we made a point to stop while in the area. It is wonderfully done and maintained. The cemetery is beautiful and so peaceful. Inside the Visitor's Center you can watch a 25 minute video that tells the story of the battle that occurred here so many years ago. The park... More

Certainly one of the most amazing places in the west. Remarkable landscape, well explained battle movements by the Park employees, and very well preserved. The battle field lies much further west than I imagined, and was spread out over a much greater area than I imagined. You cannot really appreciate the west without seeing and hearing what really happened on... More

We stopped by on the spur of the moment during a very long driving day. We were very glad we did. The most striking thing to me was the fact that the area has been preserved and looks much like it did on the day of the battle. So much more interesting. The displays and the explained the battle very... More

Being a retired Army officer this was very interesting to see the tactics that were used in Custer's time. The video and park ranger's tour are most enlightening. Go on a cool day. The sun can be quite unforgiving while trying to digest all that occured on this battlefield traveling the 5 mile auto tour.

My husband and I visited Little Bighorn National Monument 9/2/2014. We can not say enough about our experience that beautiful day. We listened to a park ranger (American Indian) speak of the battle. He put so much expression telling the story. Gen. Custer and 240 Calvary Men stood on the high plateau known as the Last Stand. They were surrounded... More

While traveling home from Yellowstone we thought we'd make a quick stop. We were not at all prepared for what we saw! Very well laid out and interesting. We drove the entire drive --pulling the camper. So awesome. The map and board information really told the story and made you understand and feel like you were there. We didn't have... More
