My husband has wanted to see Little Bighorn for years and we finally had a chance to be in the area. Excellent presentation at the Visitors Center. As other reviewers have said the Ranger talk was extremely interesting. We didn't have time to take the driving tour but enjoyed walking around the battlefield and learning more about this important event in the history of our country.

Luckily we arrived just as a ranger began speaking about the battle and what had led to it. She was very respectful to both sides and explained motivations, battle planning and mistakes, etc. There's a film, too, inside the visitor center and some good displays. But walking and/or driving through the battlefield is the main thing. One thing that could be improved was the signage for various locations on the battlefield. They provide a "Touring the Battlefield" brochure with numbered places. However, those numbers aren't indicated anywhere, unlike other national parks and monuments. Anyway, plan to spend a few hours to really see what there is to see.

Stopped here to stretch our legs and wish I could have stayed longer. Caught the end of the Ranger talk and after hearing that, I wanted to hear more. I would catch the Ranger talk. Lunch at the Trading Post across the street was very good.

The area allows you to walk as much or as little as you like. A road runs around the battlefield if you don't want to hike. Everything is well marked and the phone dial up option gives you additional information at each station.

Being from the south and having never been in the west for any extended time, I was surprised at the feelings this park and monument evoked in me. The Civil War battle sites in TN, MS, GA etc. momentarily make my heart sadden at the loss of life of young men and women who died in defense of a cause. My experience here was no different emotionally for me as it brought to life Custer's soldiers and the Native Americans who perished in this place. It also made one think of the various nationalities that built this great nation. I am so glad that people are still visiting and remembering through this memorial the history of our great country. Would definitely visit again.
