Chateau de Mores reveals life on the plains in the late 1800's. Interesting history and a remarkable home. 80-90% of the original furnishings, dishes, cookware, bedding, and hunting artifacts adorn the home still today. Combine a tour of the home with a visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Co-located with an interpretive center and museum which shows the history of... More

We visited the Chateau during a trip to Theodore Roosevelt national Park. It is near the South Unit of the park. There is a visitor center that shows a short video about the Marquis DeMores who built the Chateau in 1884. Then you drive a short distance to the Chateau which the Marquis describe as a hunting cabin. A 27... More

The tour gave you a great feel for what life was like at Chateau de Mores. Loved the house! Loved the history that came to be the foundation of Medora.

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
