Visited on Sept. 30 - gates were open but Custer’s House was closed. Could walk to the house but windows were all covered with drapes, etc. so couldn’t see in. Still worth the visit.

Would have been a palace on the frontier.

Beautiful house 'on the prairie'. Very interesting tour by a very enthusiastic tour guide in period dress (cavalry soldier). Anyone remotely interested in the 'Custer story' should visit and take this tour, very informative as to the background and personalities of Custer and his wife, Elizabeth.

A step back in time

We had no idea of the majesty of the house that General George Armstrong Custer created for himself. Amazing attention to details in this reconstruction. The "soldier" park ranger was excellent in his portrayal of a Seventh Calvaryman.

Last home of George and Libbie Custer
Jul 2019 • Couples
George Custer and wife Libbie lived in the house from 1873 until Custer died at the Battle of the Big Little Horn in 1876. A reconstruction of the Custer House was opened 1989. Interpretive Pass is $8.00 Adult. There are a number of items in the house belonging to the Custers. Libbie Custer had written down a detailed and descriptive inventory of all their belongings. These items were able to be reconstructed and displayed. The guides are dressed in period costumes. Very enjoyable tour. There is a park entrance fee. Ample parking near each attraction in park. There is a commissary store, bookstore and restroom near the Custer home.

WOW, what a house of the time!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Totally impressed with the size of this house! Our tour guide was very informative. Really enjoyed that once going inside the house that our guide stayed in character of the time period of the house and site! Loved seeing the "special attention" pieces. :) The house has central air, so the tour was comfortable which was nice since it was upper 80's the day we were there.

It Was Closed
Oct 2018 • Couples
We didn’t know it was closed for the winter. We still walked around and took some photos. Would have been nice to take the tour. We paid $7 to park and then found out it was closed. Be sure it is open before you pay to park.

Sad it Wasn't Open
Sep 2018 • Solo
The house is only open during the summer which is too bad. Wish they could make accommodations for us folks who travel off season by being open weekends. From the outside seems li,e it would have been cool.

Experience the history first hand
May 2018 • Couples
The Custer house is a reproduction built on the site of the original house. You tour the house with a guide dressed in period clothing and playing a character. Our guide was a 7th cavalry trooper. He told us he was from company E which, as history tells us, he would never return from the Battle of Little Bighorn. The house itself is an authentic period house. Don't forget to climb the hill behind the house and look for a big rock. Custer and his wife spent alot of time sitting on this same rock enjoying each others company.
