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.

I am so pleased we went along to see this. So you pay $28 per car which then gives you access for three days and means you can go back in the evening to see a light show. The info film at the start is...More

The sculpture is incredible. The story around the idea and dedication to make it happen is almost unbelievable and certainly inspiring. You can see it from the road, but it's all about the story you'll learn when you get inside. We're not museum people, but...More

We just entered the park and took a photo. Well, to see the monument from the road you have to use your imagination because it will take a lot time to finish..... My expectation was very high but reality bites.....

I thought $11 to park at Mt Rushmore National Park was a rip, but Crazy Horse will cost you $22 to drive in and park. Like Mt Rushmore, I’m glad we stopped but it didn’t take an hour to see everything we wanted to see....More

The entrance fee of $28 seemed extreme. But when I found out that the entire monument is privately funded it made sense. It is crazy to see how long it has already taken them and how much longer it will take to finish the monument....More

To be perfectly honest this stop was much more impressive to me than it was to my wife. I, of course, was amazed at the scope of this undertaking... but was even more impressed with the visitor's center. I have collected Native American art for...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.
