The visitor center and Last Stand Hill are wonderful to see, but you should also take the time to drive to the Reno-Benteen battle site as well as hike around all the available trails. The beauty is stunning.

Seriously, I don't really have anything to add to what others have said about this remarkable place. It is extremely beautiful and haunting; I have studied this battle for years but the pictures just don't do the place justice, you HAVE to see the setting first hand to get a feel for it all. I am glad we came after... More

National Park Service run clean facilities with great overview of battle and events/clash of cultures leading up to the battle. Excellent signs throughout the battlefield allows one to clearly envision the battle and the outcomes of tactical decisions made by officers of the 7th Cav with resulting native american responses.

This battlefield is really an interesting place. There is a good museum and a theater that tells the story of the Little Bighorn Battle. The battlefield is actually quite a few places spread over a nearby area. It has the distinction of being the only battlefield in the world where the remains of those that were killed are buried where... More

The part that was the most fascinating was the talk given by the Park Ranger!! He set the scene and events so that we could have a better understanding of the whole battle! And he kept you interested!! A little bit of a steep climb to visit the monument, but worth it!! There is a lot to see so you... More

This was the second time I went to the Little Big Horn. I found it just as moving and interesting the second visit as I did on the first. The Ranger tour was good (but not as good as last time), and the movie was enjoyable as well. This is a great stop for anyone interested in history. Budget a... More

This is one of the most moving places I've visited. It's like walking with ghosts. The ranger did one of the most realistic talks I've ever heard. Walk the path to the revine it's worth the walk back up
