We hadn't known of this before we visited Medora. Stopped in and did the exhibits and the house. Very interesting and really gives you insight on how Medora came to be. If you are interested in history, you will like this!

You will find all you need to know about the Chateau de Mores home and the family who owned it at the excellent interpretive center. There are displays and a video presentation there, and clean bathroom facilities as well. We paid for the home tour, and got a very brief intro at the door of the home, and were sent... More

We toured this historic home. What a wonderful glimpse into life in the late 1800's for a "hunting & summer home".

If you are interested in the history of Medora and this prominent mansion, the interpretive center's exhibits and information at this site will provide that information for you without charge. If you wnat to take a tour of the "chateau" to see the 26 rooms representing the lifestyle of the founder of the town there is a moderate charge. Not... More

We enjoyed the tour of the château and interpretative center. The information is complete and gives a very good history of Medora. The restoration of the château is amazing.

I love historical sites and this was no let down. The tour was very well executed. And if something wasn't covered and I asked a question about anything in one of the rooms or just in General, the tour guides new the answer right away. The view from the veranda was gorgeous and I loved that there were benches to... More

Professional level up to date displays in the visitor center. Fun gift shop. State interpretative employees in the Chateau ranged from good to snooty! Stop and sit on the veranda and enjoy the view! It doesn't get any better

This was all new to me and it was interesting to see how the "high-born" settled in The West. The house was well preserved and the actors and guides great.

The stagecoach was a great experience, realizing this was the mode of travel from Medora to Deadwood in 36 hours we hopped aboard. The ride was bumpy but much more authentic than the stagecoach in town that drove on pavement. It was a two mile ride along the river over dirt roads much as it would have been during the... More

The tour of Chateau de Mores was very interesting. Not by vision of a "Hunting Cabin" but it looks like it was quite the place in it's day. Fabulous views of the Missouri river valley and the Owners cattle ranch. Many of the items in the house are original which really helps one visualize what life would have been like... More
