A very moving bit of our history. This was on our must do list while on vacation and we are so glad we went. The museum and store were well laid out and informative. They had a 25 minute movie that Wes very good then a bit later a ranger face a presentation that gave you more of a feel of the battlefield. We walked up to the monuments then got in our car and drove the rest of the way. The Indian memorial was closed for renovation which was disappointing. What we could see was beautiful.
As we walked and drove the site we could actually see in our minds eye the herds of Bison that had once roamed the area along with the Indians. Very beautiful and very moving.

The history of this event, about what happened and all the sacrifices made from all sides that took part in this famous battle. Like stepping back in time.

I have always wanted to travel to the USA and see a number of the famous historical sites. This being one of them. It's unbelievable when you walk along the path and study the positions all groups were at and how it all went down. You can almost imagine the scene as it played out all those years ago. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are keen on historical battles & facts. There are many great tour holidays that include a visit to this famous site, with guides that share some of the history on it.

Anyone who wants to know what "really" happened at the Battle of the Little Big Horn...has to go there. This place is truly spiritual. The NPS rangers do a phenomenal job of orienting and guiding folks as well as providing the true picture and action versus the politically corrected one! Its awesome, incredible, sad, painful, inspiring and indicative of a time that has effected the American psyche for over 100 years.

Sitting on the hill and looking down into the valley is an awesome sight. What the Troopers felt and how their last minutes on earth were spent is not only humbling, but truly indicative of bravery in the face of insurmountable odds.

The museum has much more recent artifacts than originally designed and as recent as the 90s there have been findings. One finding including using modern scientific techniques to recreate a face from a skeleton that was then positively identified as one the NCOs in the troop. Unbelievable.

I've been to dozens of battlefields, both overseas and in the States and this one always moves me. Do yourself a favor, take a trip here and walk the ground. Bring water, sunscreen and a good camera. Its well worth the trip.

Happy travels.

After reading a lot of western-novels for many years, it was amazing to be where things happened. The place is very well set up and gives great info about how the famous battle happened.
