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.

Since this is a private monument, which is solely funded by the admission fees, I can understand, of course, that the entrance fee is slightly higher. But you should tell the interested visitor at the entrance already, that one has to pay extra for the...More

I have it 4 stars for the view of Crazy Horse and idea, but have to tell you it was too structured (everything has a price) for me! I’ll drive by but won’t go in again.

The mountain sculpture is not done yet but the museum on site was very well done. It had many beautiful feather headdresses, leather clothing with beads, beaded moccasins, and many other items of interest. I was pleasantly surprised.

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
