We toured as part of an Insight Vacations package. You read about this isn history books and see the movies, but it doe not do justice to the actual landscape. This is open rolling plains and the various battles took place over many square miles. The landscape puts the battle in perspective. There is a small but comprehensive meuseum, but... More

Doesn't take too much time, but tells both sides of the story pretty well. There are tributes to the soldiers as well as the braves who fought the battle. It also has a national cemetery there.

If you remember little about Little Big Horn the museum and film will educate you. Everything is well done. There is equal representation to both the Indian and Union issues and the aftermath of the battle.

We visited in August 2014 and were gifted with pleasant weather and an excellent presentation by former high-school-teacher-and-football-coach, now NPS Ranger Steve Adelson, who dramatized the events leading up to the battle, and the battle itself, from the perspectives of both sides. What a vivid picture he painted as we gazed out onto the Montana prairies, hills, and the fertile... More

The museum had me very excited- we watched the video and then listened to a talk by the history interpreter/ranger. We took the quick walk up to the monument, but the freezing rain drove us back into the car for the driving tour loop. The materials provided for the phone tour are very poor. The signs with the numbers for... More

This is a really nice place to visit especially if you have Ranger Adelson (?) give you a presentation on the background and battle. He was fantastic. Explained about Custer, Reno Banteen, Crazy Horse and the rest of the native American Indians. A solemn place with a national cemetery with over 5000 soldiers from WW! through Iraq. There are markers... More

We visited in August in cold rain but the beauty of the golden grassy hills and the monuments were not diminished. The 1/2 hour video presentation presented the lead up to the class between General Custer and Sitting Bull and other tribal leaders in a way that revered both sides and situated the event in the history and culture of...

It was absolutely pouring when we went and it added a melancholy air to the site. We were surprised by the sheer size of it and the horses that wander about. (One had a lame foot which caused me no end of concern). It's very sobering to see the spots where so many lost there lives and we really enjoyed... More

Priceless! Worth a visit along with all the related other historic attractions and exhibits! Take the time to absorb the truth meaning of what is being offered.

We spent about 4 hours walking the battlefields and taking a guided tour. Eric, the tour guide, was very good and helped us understand the dynamics that happened on those two days. I highly recommend taking the guided tour because it solidified our understanding of the events that transpired. The entire site is very well preserved and is maintained beautifully.... More
