I am very glad that we made time to visit this memorial. The film explaining how this family became involved in the project is really well made. It does cause one to wonder whether the monument will ever be finished, or whether it should be....More

If you have just visited Mt. Rushmore, this monument is pretty underwhelming. The $11 per person gets you into the Visitor's Center which is a strange combination of Native American history and commercialism. Granted the spacious interior of the center is impressive visually because of...More

Just amazing. What you have to remember is this is NOT a government project nor a national park. This is a private venture. It is a massive project that will take decades to complete. Definitely a must see.

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
