The cost to enter the monument was $30 per carload, all for access to a "viewing platform" that you a view not much better than you would get from the road. If you want to get up closer to the monument you have to pay...More

One of the few (perhaps the only) monument specifically dealing with a Native American, Crazy Horse Memorial is a huge work in progress that will take many years to finish. The granite protrusion on this mountain is beautiful in itself, but Crazy Horse's face in...More

This was another item on my bucket list. It is so massive! The visitors center was really cool, so many things to see and read. Well worth the entry fee.

My first trip was 2004 and there has been little if any progress on monument since then; however, the museum makes the $30 car load access fee worth the price of admission.

I was there the last day of September on a road scholar tour and was able to climb to the arm of the monument. Once (or twice) a year there is a Volksmarch, a 6.2 mile round-trip woodlands hike up to the outstretched arm which...More

I recently visited the memorial with my wife and her parents. It's $30.00 per carload to get in. While I was hoping on more of a up close look at the memorial its actually more of a museum visit. The entrance fee covers the exhibits...More

Crazy Horse Memorial is not too far from Mount Rushmore, and was definitely worth the trip to see it. After paying admission you'll receive a ticket for entrance into the museum for everybody in your vehicle. As the greeter will tell you and others who've...More

Certainly an off season visit place to be, apparently during summer its insane. Learned new things. This is a HUGE monument. Worth seeing! Take the bus ride!

No. The museum and the monument are worth seeing. The undertaking to completely remove a mountain and shape the remaining surface is incredible. Unlike Mt. Rushmore, all debris has to be removed. An incredible... More
