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.

This place is awesome! And the story is fantastic. Be sure to take a tour van around the mountainous area so you can get a lot of different views. You won't regret it. The onsite facilities are great too. Very clean, very well laid out....More

I have seen this location three times over a twenty year time line. The progress is both instantly visual and impressive. The magnitude of the effort is astounding. Blast, remove, shape and repeat. The compilation of moving and removing the displaced rock is the most...More

This memorial is really amazing to see. It is even more amazing that they accept no funds from the government. They run strictly off of donations and trusts set up for the continuation of the project. Once completed it will be a marvel to see!

$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.
