Plenty of history in a nice condensed movie and two interesting exhibits. It was a great introduction to the birth of the town of Medora. The Château was actually not available to tour in the fall season.

If you get a chance, visit Medora the weekend after Labor Day, the hustle and bustle is gone, the rates for motels are less and this little town welcomes you like none other. The Chateau is one of our favorite places to tour. The guides are always well educated and can answer practically any questions you may have.

Great stop for those interested in architecture and design mixed with history and intrigue. Quick stop in Medora but stayed our departure in order to take in this gem. Not our first time through it and every time we go, there's something to note that you haven't seen or heard before. Great house and a great true life story.

Well worth the price of admission. Interpretative Center is the starting point - watch the video, look at the artifacts and then go to the Chateau. There are helpful docents throughout the house. The idea of a 26 room "hunting lodge" seems strange today but is an interesting piece of history.

I didn't realize this was a self-guided tour, which is pretty difficult with a five year old who doesn't read. The Visitor's Center museum was interesting and the video provided was good. The house itself is beautiful and filled with wonderful antiques. There were tour guides throughout the house to answer questions but they didn't seem overly excited to be... More

A must see when you visit Medora. The history of the area in a nutshell. The volunteers are knowledgable, which added to our experience.

This place is fantastic. Took us completely by surprise. The hosts in each room of the chateau are wonderful at explaining the history of the place and how it was used. They are very knowledgeable about all the artifacts that are there. I thought it would be OK but was blown away by the visit. I cannot recommend it more... More

We visited the Chateau after hearing about it while visiting the area. It is a nice attraction that is worth your time. A lot of history on how de Mores was trying to change the way cattle production was done at the time and how the unions had such influence. The video at the visitor center is good and short....

Very interesting place. First you stop in the visitors center and gift shop and pay your admission fee. Then you watch a 10 minute introductory film. After that there are two galleries to go through inside the visitor's center. One is about the Marquis and the other is about Native American blankets. Then you drive (or walk if you want... More
