“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

There is a lot we didn't know about Little Big Horn but the bus tour we took was informative and we learned more than they teach in school. We listened to a guide, saw a film, and had the tour as well as walked around. You know exactly where General Custer died and how it all happened. It is awesome.

“Interesting history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.

“Everyone should visit this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

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.

“just passing through, so glad I stopped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

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.

“Very sobering visit. Super hike through the actual battlefield.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

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.
