We really enjoyed the buffalo jump. It was amazing to see how much excavating they have done at the sight. It was very interesting to see the levels and how much bone was still buried. Well worth the time to go see it!

My husband and I visited the buffalo jump going through Havre. Hugely interesting and important. Worth the $10 entrance fee, because with that you get a guided tour back into time. The only one of three archeological sites uncovered here that remains.

I never knew that the common way that Indians killed buffalo was to herd the bison off a cliff. Then the hunters would prepare the meat and the hides for their uses. This is also a very scenic overview of the area. I learned a...More
