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.

Nothing like seeing it in person; native Americans were giving a performance at the same time and the entire scene was captivating

I enjoyed this monument. It was a cloudy day, so we didn't get to see too much on the outside, but the museum area was interesting and informative. They also had a performance by one of the Native Americans that talked and demonstrated "spirits". We...More

$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.
