Very cool place, great views, very interesting stories that go along with it. They have a diner & musical that goes along with it, food was great & the musical is a must see, well worth the cost, a whole afternoon & evening of entertainment.

We toured the museum and the beautiful home upon the hill. If you love history, you will definitely love this site. During our tour, there was a reenactment of Mrs. deMores. She presented the history of the lifestyle of their family while living in Medora. Very interesting.

First we stopped in the visitor center where we paid admission to the house. The visitor center has a couple of galleries and a short film devoted to the Marquis and his family. Later, we went up to the Chateau. As we walked up the steps to the porch, we were greeted by a docent who took us inside and... More

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
