“Best Kept Secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We enjoyed the chance to tour ourselves with headphones and enjoyed each of the exhibits. Would certainly recommend going early in the day and before you actually go see Mount Rushmore. It will mean so much more to you when you have a better notion of how it was made.

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We were expecting to see more of how Mt. Rushmore was built, but instead got a look into the life of the sculptor Borglum. While the audio tour was very informative, the building and exhibits needs an update. It looks like the building and exhibits were made quite some time ago and it has never been updated. We would not return here.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside will not disappoint. The history of Gutzon Borglum and Mt Rushmore is amazing. Such a talented man. Go here first before going to Mt. Rushmore. You will have a greater understanding of everything. The cost is $10 a person or $25 per family and this includes an audio tour of the museum. A must do!!

“Do This Before Your Visit to Mount Rushmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We stopped here and spent 1 hour viewing the movie and taking the audio tour of the museum. Who knew that Gutzon Borglum was such a talented and diverse creator of not only art, but inventions!
