Like most people of our age group, in the UK, ‘Custer’s Last Stand’ is a definitive place mark for the ‘Old West’, thus the Little Big Horn Battlefield NM is a must see if you’re on a road trip of the region. But, the balanced video presentation, memorials to both 7th Cavalry and Sioux Warriors and the ability to ‘walk... More

This was a great experience, even though the day was drizzly and at some point we were in the rain. So what, it's history and we walked the area. There are great docents to give you information if you're not that familiar with the "event". The cell phone audio tour is terrific! It was a sight to behold, trying to... More

It is a great place to visit if you like Western History, remembering it is also an active Military Cemetery so decorum please. Drive the route to get an idea of the events.

I wasn't really excited about this stop on our trip, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the monument. There is some walking but it's not bad. There are walking trails for the advanced hiker. There are also Handicap parking at mostly every stop.

I have been here several times and each time I find it to be more interesting than the last. If you get a chance pick up Will Hutchison's book Artifacts of the Battle of Little Bighorn. His photos really bring to life the things of the era they used on the field by both sides. This is one of my... More

A real highlight of our 3500 mile tour from California to South Dakota and back. Ever since I was a child I had been fascinated by the Battle of the Little Bighorn (thanks to an old Waddington's board game) and this was a "must see" for me on our trip. And I was not disappointed. After a very informative and... More

He was so informative. you could tell that this was his passion and he took it very seriously. He told about the history of... More

I knew about George Custer's last stand as a kid growing up, but having now been at this location and hearing about the events surrounding the days, hours and minutes leading up to what happened, I now have a better understanding of the sacredness of this area. The park ranger (from Virginia) was detailed and very animated in his presentation... More

We visited the Monument (not the cemetery) taking in the video, the Ranger talk and joined one of the Apsaalooke Tours. All were very worthwhile and it was interesting to get the 3 similar but slightly different perspectives of this historical spot. There is a lot of history here and we needed more time than we had planned for. We... More

We spent from 1100 a.m. to 4 p.m. at this site. The employees were very friendly and helpful. Recommend watching the 25 minute video before venturing off on the actual property which is presented in the main building. Wear comfortable footwear if you plan walking around as the terrain does present some challenges (manageable for most). Brochures are available at... More
