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.

- Entrance fee is $30, 3x what it is to get into Mt. Rushmore. Similar to the cost to get into other national parks for 7 days. - This fee only gets you to the visitors center. Same view of memorial prior to paying the...More

I was very upset to see how a beautiful mountain that was once a natural awe inspiring feature came to be such a quarry-like mess. The vibrations I picked up on there were extremely negative and my spirits felt crushed. I honestly felt upset for...More

After you have visited Mount Rushmore (or before), be sure to drive on down the road a few miles further and visit this fantastic work of art, still in the making. This is a private venture, not federal or state, and it is worth every...More

You can see it as good from the highway as you can after spending $24 to get to the visitors center. Want to get closer it will cost you another $20. They have been working on it for 70 years, why rush to finish it...More

My favorite place on our trip. Be sure to watch the movie. It's amazing and you really see the determination in this man and what he went through in those first years. The monument in itself hadn't changed much, but the museum is utterly unbelieveable....More

I'm so glad a friend had told me to see the movie first. It's an amazing story, what these people are doing. It may not be finished for another generation or more. I found it all very moving.

Historical sculpture that is unfinished but it is being worked on. This sculpture is not being funded by our government so it relies heavily on private funding from visitors and people interested in the historical significance of Crazy Horse. Interesting tidbit, Mount Rushmore was funded...More

This was the first stop on a week-long road trip, and we had very little knowledge of this Monument before arriving. Friends and family said it was nice, but that’s all we really heard. We had very low expectations of this place and only planned...More

$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.
