The mission of Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians. The Foundation demonstrates its commitment to this endeavor by continuing the progress on the world's largest sculptural undertaking by carving a memorial of Lakota leader Crazy Horse; by providing educational and cultural programming; by acting as a repository for American Indian artifacts, arts and crafts through the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER(R); and by establishing and operating the INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and, when practical, a medical training center for American Indians.

My family was amazed at the history and beauty of Crazy Horse. We didn't even know it existed until we stumbled upon it during a trip to Mount Rushmore. The museum is fantastic and the story is incredible. We hope to go back in a few decades to see the progress. Truly amazing.

This was not my first visit to Crazy Horse. I have gone multiple times over the years. I did the Volksmarch several years ago and highly recommend it. However, my hubby and kids (5 & 1) had their first visit. The oldest loved it. She loved the informative movie and the Indian history museum as well as the fighting stallions... More

A monument so grand that it hasn't been finished...yet. Does not match Mount Rushmore in stature, but a place worthy of seeing for sure.

The Memorial cost $28 for 4 of us in the car. The car park isn't much closer than what we saw on the road. In our ignorance we were unsure what to expect but had read information that it was a must and as we were driving past we figured we should go in! The actual monument really isn't anything... More

Crazy Horse is kind like the underachieving brother to Mount Rushmore. He really should get his life together, but he's just way too disorganized despite his potential. The statue is cool, but may never be finished. You can see it from a distance, but to get close costs quite a bit (I opted not to). There are photos of people... More

The family who owns this property has been working on Crazy Horse for many years.I have been here three times over the years and not that much changes. However, every time I go it seems like something new because of how grand and breathtaking this sculpture is and will be once completed. Unlike Mt. Rushmore, their are no hiking trails... More

The Crazy Horse Memorial Center offered a very interesting walk through the history of both the area and the exploits of Chief Crazy Horse. The displays and the educational sessions offered by the Center make this a most interesting stop in the area. The memorial continues to be developed and it's interesting to monitor the progress with the carving of... More

We visited Mount Rushmore first, and I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I found it disappointing. We then went to the Crazy Horse Memorial, and stayed until dark! We all loved it, from the informative video (such a fascinating story ), to the bus ride up the mountain, to the displays and books, and finally to the Native... More

I would recommend seeing this before visiting Mr. Rushmore. We visited Mt. Rushmore and this monument pales in comparison. While we appreciated the work that the family has put into creating this masterpiece, we would not visit it again or strongly recommend it to anyone else. There was a film about the site but no update as to where the... More

We had no problem with the entrence money. You support a very good project which costs a lot of money. If I read there are people who take pictures from the road so they don't have to pay it makes me sick. If you go inside you understand what a good project you support. And the money for the bus???...
