It was nice seeing the place in person. There are some ok places to take selfies, but I personally wish they had created a viewing area on top of the building with the food court. It would have been a great place to take som photos from.

Mount Rushmore is about a 30 min drive from Rapid city,spectacular views, great visitor center, gift shop and restaurants make this attraction a wonderful experience. When I got there it was foggy, but after an hour the weather cleared up and It was magical!

We really enjoyed visiting - the Junior Ranger program is great, do not miss the Sculptor's Studio and the Presidential Trail. Ranger Programs are throughout the day, early evening and are also worth it. We ended up spending more time, and enjoying every minute, than we thought we would (adults and kids alike!). We completed our visit in the Visitor's... More

This was neat to see. Prices were decent. Clean atmosphere. Staff was very nice. I think it's a great attraction to bring your kids to learn about our presidential history. Souvenir prices were a little pricy but over all its a great place to visit.

Can be crowded is the morning and mid day. There is an evening program with lighting ceremony, but we did not attend. Ice cream is yummy. Take the trail up as close as you can. Monument is free but parking is 11 dollars.

I've driven past Mt Rushmore before. It's an amazing site. I've never been with anyone who wanted to pay the entrance fee to go into the park, however, until recently. I took my Mexican wife and 2 year-old daughter there in July 2017... both were amazed. How can you not be when you think about those men sculpting those faces... More

It has been more than more than 30 years since we last visited Mt. Rushmore. It’s amazing that the thrill and excitement is still there. The views from the various vantage points are still impressive. The infrastructure has obviously improved and parking is easy and convenient …if not a bit expensive. The displays and the story of the construction of... More

The new visitor center, underground parking, exhibits, films, shopping are all awesome! Giant yummy ice cream cones aka Thomas Jefferson. Very busy but crowd flowed, everyone kind and polite. Tip: get there an hour or more before for the nightly illumination, 2500 folks show up every night in the summer!
