We were there the 3rd week of September and stayed 4 days. We went to this place twice and it never did open. Waited about an hour each time and nothing.

This is quite interesting, It was sad to see how the Original Americans have had their land stolen and this family as capitalized from, but it is true of most of America. I still loved seeing MT. Rushmore. It is a joy and pain experience.

This was very interesting to learn more about the man that did Mount Rushmore, you see his other work and learn about his life and family. They have a lot of things to look at, they have those headphones so you can hear a description of what you are looking at. There was a film also.

This was closed for the season when we were there. Sad. I wanted to see this about the creator of Mt. Rushmore. Sad that it was closed for the season.

Very comprehensive display of everything related to the Crazy Horse Memorial. Plenty to look at. The family is continuing his dream...and will probably never be completely finished with the memorial because people return to it now to see the progress...once it's completed, it's done. Not sure it will be as big a "draw" as Mt. Rushmore.

Very organized tour of displays of this man and his work. Listening and learning about these displays were pretty informative. I really like this way of communicating to the public what is on exhibit. Learned more here than at any of the other museums for that simple fact. Enjoyed it!

Staff were very friendly and informative. We did the half tour, which consisted of one room of artifacts and a film. The film at Mount Rushmore was more informative. Found it expensive for what we obtained

We went on a Sunday during tourist season and it was closed what a joke I guess I should have called ahead but since it was during the busy time for Keystone i thought it would be open

It closes earlier than the exhibits and we were not aware of that until we arrived and only had 5 minutes to go through it. It didn't seem like there was a whole lot there though. In my opinion it should stay open until the lighting ceremony like the main building does but maybe they close down early so people... More
