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.

We were here almost 20 years ago and at the last minute decided to go back on our last trip. I'm not sure there has been much progress on the monument from what I could see, but I was impressed in the improvements made to the museum. The video they show when you first walk in was really nice and... More

Even though not much progress is being done, I really enjoyed this. The Museum part had lots of Indian artifacts, and pictures etc. However I have to agree with other people that have reviewed this the price of 11.00 per person is a little much.

Other than My. Rushmore, this was the highlight of our trip. Make plans to go in late afternoon or eve, you can take a bus ride all the way to the face and there is a laser light show in eve as well.

We were traveling with dogs and happy to finally have a place we could take them, but not impressed. I am happy to support their dream, but the carving hasn't changed in about fifteen years. Makes you wonder what they are spending the money on. If you LOVE Indian things this is the place for you, everything you could ever... More

Definitely worth a stop. This is my 2nd time to SD. First time saw Crazy Horse from highway only. This time took the family into the park. The movie was very educational and the Native American museum is a wealth of information. The best is yet to come with this place.

The monument is certainly impressive for the small number of people who have worked on it. As other reviewers have said, the cost may not necessarily be worth it. It was $11 per person to get in and see it from a distance. To get up close, you have to pay extra for a bus ride, which we didn't take.... More

My opinion only. $28 for parking was way too expensive. I am fully aware of the fact, that the Memorial is not government funded. I know the Monumnet is being built without "help". But really $28 to park??!! I was very disapponted about the procegress on the statue. I was expecting it to be further along than it was. We... More

If you are short on time and like us are traveling with a dog then definitely turn into the street to this monument, but tell them you are turning around and you can get close enough pictures to satisfy you. Would visit this again if in the area and we are not restricted by having an animal because we do... More

Visited here on a very hot day! The staff were all friendly and helpful and there was lots to see and read about in the visitor centre. The history of the sculpture and the Indians was well set out. Not sure why there is no state funding for this?

As others have said, the price verses return is way too high. The cost to get in is higher than it is to park and see a completed Mt Rushmore. I realize this money goes towards the build of this memorial, however we felt nickle and dime'd. After paying the entry fee we then find out that there is an... More
