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 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...More

After seeing (and being disappointed by) Mount Rushmore, nothing quite prepares you for the size, scale and sheer enormity of this endeavour. Solely funded through private donations (and the entry ticket price) this is a quite extraordinary sight to see. The work of a single...More

This was a touching and very educational visit. The staff treats you like family. I wanted to buy everything inside the gift shop. I can not wait until the carving is complete. I will absolutely go back.

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
