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.

Worth to see

It is definitively place to see. However is it predictable, very commercial and expensive to pay for all parts especially if you have big family.

This is one of those purely American crazy stories. It's well worth a visit and walk around. The story and the site are pretty mind blowing. I wonder if it will ever be completed but then again, I like that they aren't in a hurry.

The monument itself is not completed, likely will not be completed for some time. The original sculptor started it in the 1940s, and his family has continued the process. The museum on site provides an interesting and instructional movie on the history of the monument and it's significance. The museum staff is very friendly, helpful, obviously dedicated to the cause.... More

Stopped in on the way to Mount Rushmore. It was on the expensive side but the museum was very informative. It is a slow moving project but you can see a finished sculpture and progress in the museum.

We were a little disappointed with the amount we paid to get in, then the extra that needs to be paid to get on the bus closer to the hill. If we had have known this, we would have viewed the crazy horse from the road.

Slowly but surely this awesome undertaking is taking shape. Don't think I'll be around when it's completed but enough is done at this point to capture the magnitude of the project. Pricey admission but don't let that deter you from seeing this awe inspiring attraction.

Unfortunately it was not possible to get a close look. Large exhibit. Price is double of Mount Rushmore...

I could have stayed here all day. There is so much history here. I met a wonderful gentleman and Author, "Edd MaGAA" (Eagle Man). The time we spent talking was so memorable. I highly recommend reading his books!

Yes it does have a high admission fee, but this park is not part of the National Park Service nor does it receive federal or state funding. The website lists all of the prices for admission and tours. The mountain is impressive. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Indian Museum of North America and the grounds around the welcome center. I...

we visited this place in Aug 2015 and I was in awe of the vision. This is still in progress, but the thought and struggle of the family put into creating this memorial is well beyond any words. Do stay for the late night laser show to know more. I still remember the song they played along with the light... More
