The mission of Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians. The Foundation demonstrates its commitment to this endeavor by continuing the progress on the world's largest sculptural undertaking by carving a memorial of Lakota leader Crazy Horse; by providing educational and cultural programming; by acting as a repository for American Indian artifacts, arts and crafts through the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER(R); and by establishing and operating the INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and, when practical, a medical training center for American Indians.

The weather was not great , but I spent over an hour looking at the Indian artifacts. It is a wonderful collection of well preserved Indian objects of a bygone era. I found the history of the memorial interesting as well.

The monument has great historical significance but the entry fee was like $30 for a vehicle with three adults but does not include the bus trip to get closer. The museum is not well organized so it is hard to follow the displays. Ultimately you...More

The fee to enter this memorial is astronomical. 28$/car is crazy for what you get. A small museum, a gift shop is pretty much it. I read the book journey of crazy horse to prepare for this and was thoroughly disappointed. The lack of progress...More

One day, I hope this is as impressive as it should be. Lack of funding I feel will never allow this monument to be completed. It's a shame... if completed as planned, it would be much larger, and more impressive in its scope than its...More

We probably loved this even better than Mount Rushmore. Still not complete but when finished, it will be magnificent! This monument was started in 1948. Crazy Horse Memorial does not receive any federal or state money so things have been a slow go. They receive...More

The ambition of this project is staggering. The museum has many beautiful pieces. The film is very informative and worthwhile. We have great respect for this private foundation and its goals. It was worth the price of entry to support them.

I would suggest visiting at another time if possible. The roads in the area are two lane and can become congested when special events are held. The Memorial is worth the visit but you need to have time to tour the exhibits... More
