This site does a great job of giving a true and realistic picture of what actually happened and more importantly, why it happened. It portrays an honest representation of the conflicts between the govenrment and local tribes at the time. It does not glorify Custer's actions, nor make him a hero or villain. It tells the story including the WOUNDED... More

Must see for history buffs. Since we live so close, we visit many times a year. Would suggest taking the time to read and visit all parts of the park.

I am impressed at the respect that was shown to show both sides of the massacre story. The grave stones laid out on the hill draw your attention to where Custer made his last stand. And the fairly new addition of the white and brown grave markers outstretch a five mile area to mark where those who were killed, fell;... More

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...
