The Mount Rushmore attraction is very impressive. Excellent visitor facilities, informative displays and very friendly, helpful personnel make for comfortable and educating experience. The views from most elevated positions are scenic and well worth the drive to get to this attraction.

They straightened my wife's wedding ring that was bent and polished it. When we asked how much, they said no charge. We had not even bought it there. The tour is very informative and interesting in learning how the Black Hills Gold is made with different colors.
