Lightening Ceremony is wonderful.

Something every person should see. Hard to believe it was done so many years ago and they didn't have modern tools to carve the faces.

We just visited the Mount Rushmore monument which was an awe inspiring work of art that you must really see. Unfortunately the workers there were rude and ruined the moment.First when we paid the eleven dollars for parking the young woman in the booth clearly didn't like her job and was rude to me and even rolled her eyes at...

Everyone should have the opportunity to see this Memorial. It is very well laid out so even seniors or people who can't walk well can enjoy it.

We went to the monument in the evening. I highly recommend going at night, because they have a night show that starts at 9:00. It shows a short movie on the history, and ends with having all military come help lower the flag. It was very patriotic and beautiful!

My first trip here and all I can say is wow! There is a lot of information about the presidents depicted, the process of building the memorial, and the creator. The views are breathtaking, I can't wait to come back!

I loved Mount Rushmore. It was wonderful to see. This was the first time my husband and I had gone to see it. I would recommend anyone to go see it.

I hope this plac enever changes! One of the most awe inspiring places in the country. You'll actually enjoy the drive there and back. We also saw several mountain goats in the parking lot after our visit. Wow. Good day. Bring food or eat in the cafiteria style dining. Visiting in late spring is good, and no traffic. Visit in...

Most people have seen at least a picture of Mt Rushmore, but as you walk up the walkway with all the state flags the size, and detail of the faces become mesmerizing! We ate lunch in the restaurant there - food is simple -hotdog's, hamburgers salads etc but it was good. Came back at night for the night show -... More

When I lived in Wyoming this was one of our favorite places to visit, the shear majesty of the monument is staggering. Rich in history and pride in our heritage. A must see for everyone. This was back in the 1980s but it won't let me go back that far.

Mt. Rushmore is an awesome sight. However, returning for the night show was a little disappointing and would not recommend going.
