We enjoyed touring the home and becoming more acquainted with the beginnings of Medora. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. They were available for questions, but did not follow along with you. That gave us time to read the information posted on the walls. The summer home of the deMores family sets atop a hill and is an easy, short... More

The visitor center for the Chateau de Mores is very interesting. Amazing to think people had that much money even that long ago and how they lived and hob knobbed with the rich and famous. Once you drive from the visitor center to the parking lot of the Chateau it is a small walk to the house . The house... More

The guides were mostly helpful. One was a bit snide when asked a question. Having recently gone through Mt Vernon in DC and Alberta Bairs home in Martinsdale Montana it was fun to camp are how the house was made and how the owners influenced history of the area. The price was very reasonable $10 and didn't take very long.... More

The Chateau de Mores was built by the Marquis de Mores in 1883. It served as a hunting lodge for his family and guests. It was also the family's summer home. The property of 128 acres is now a state historic site and includes Chimney Rock and de Mores Memorial Park. As the story goes, when the Marquis died, his... More

We loved seeing the chateau. Beautiful cabin and so much history on how medora became the town it is. My whole family loved learning about it. I highly recommend going. I rated this 4 stars because it was a little over priced. It would be more worth it if the staff would of gone into more detailed history of medora... More

Visited here in 2014 because Medora was so much a part of my grandfather's early life with Teddy Roosevelt. The history maintained and presented here was so interesting and informative. Fell in love with local pottery on exhibit and now, 2 years later, I finally was able to purchase some. Thank you to Richard Fisk.

The Medora stage is a fun little ride into to pages of history. The drivers are friendly and safe. The ride is full of dips and winds its way along the cool river bottom. I would recommend to anyone wanting a short ride back in time
