Because there were only two of us on the tour we opted out of the living history tour. Nevertheless the guide did a very good job. The house is quite large and it was interesting how much of his own money Custer put into it to make it livable for his family. It shows something of what life was like... More

Today my husband and I toured the Custer house s very lovely home from the late 1800s. Our tour guide was very informative and played his character well.

So much enjoyed our tour through the Custer home led by a gifted re-enactor who played the part of an assistant to General Custer prior to the time when Custer left to meet his fate at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Tour guide pointed out many items throughout the house that had actually been owned by the Custer family.... More

I learned a lot of things I didn't know about him and his wife and children and the fort itself is on the grounds with the house. It;s very awesome, The tour guides are dressed in army atire from that area and talk to as if your back in time, Very cool and I recommend it to everyone.

The Custer House is a great place to see what life on the prairie in the 1870's was like. The interpreters that walk you through the house take you back to the day and stay in character the whole time. This is a great visit to a beautiful part of ND and US history.

We had a guided tour through Custer's house. Our guide had been role playing for Custer's house for 12 years. He was very well informed and a joy to listen to as we went through the house.

It is very interesting to see how they lived and what they had and didn't have available. It is a must see if you like history at all. So much to see out there. Take the tour you will truly enjoy it!

The original home no longer exists. This house is furnished in period furniture and the guides give the story of Custer and his wife when they lived at the fort. The house is but one part of the fort. If you go, be sure to continue on to the Block houses and also to the fort cemetery. Interesting and a... More

A tour guide dressed in period-costume gave us a tour of the last home of General George Custer before he led the 7th Calvary at their defeat at Little Bighorn. Before taking us inside she gave us basic information about Custer, his wife, and the home. Once inside she took on the role of housekeeper and was true to the... More
