I really enjoyed my visit there. They play a 20 minute introductory video in the gift shop that contains all the details and then I would suggest visiting the adjacent museum prior to the cellular tour of the battlefield.I visited on a day that had snow with grey clouds thus I captured great shots! Too bad I wasn't able to... More

I really enjoyed visiting here, but the young kids were not nearly as excited. the museum is nice and has a nice informational video. The drive around the battlefield is impressive and really impressed upon me the size and scope of the maneuvers involved in this battle. It helped me understand all the interesting stuff I had read. Very cool!

I didn't know much about Little Bighorn prior to my visit to the battlefield. The information that you recieved upon entry is very informative, as are the Rangers on site. It's awe inspiring to see the vast expanse of land covered with graves. The scene really tells the story of betrayal and loss of life. The site is an easy... More

This visit was a highlight of our two month road-trip through the USA. The film in the Visitors' Center sets the scene very well, and it helps you to understand what happened at that battle. After looking around the site, I had a long chat with one of the rangers on duty at the time, and this helped me understand... More

The battlefield is a must stop to understand the early history of this area and our country. Good interpretation and I recommend taking a guided tour. Sobering yet educational and mesmerizing.

The Little Bighorn Monument left me with two powerful impressions. My first impression,while touring Little Bighorn, was the respect and reverence the many visitors exhibited. No one spoke above a whisper. My second impression, was the expanse of this war, not only in the acreage of the battlefield, but in the immense loss of lives. This is a well depicted... More

The brief video available in the Visitor Center provides a great explanation of what happened and watching it before exploring the site greatly enhanced our understanding of what we were looking at.

Will never forget our visit to this National Monument. The stark, dignified presentation of the site leaves such a powerful impression. Those simple stone markers scattered across the landscape...each marking the place where a man died... are so eloquent. Have been to dozens of US historic sites and this is by far the best. Suggest starting at the visitor center... More

Under a shady area just outside the visitors' center, a park ranger shared the real story of Little Big Horn. Without political correctness he told of the events that lead to the battle and its aftermath. The man brought history to life and made people think about how seemingly unrelated events culminated in something very terrible for both sides of... More
