An hour is more than enough to see this icon. You can't get Very near it. Lots of vantage points for great photos and to stand and stare. Facilities are good making it easy to visit. Free too, only pay for parking.

We arrived by 8 am (roughly) and got the chance to have breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the monuments. Breakfast was okay - a bit chaotic getting served and finding what we needed. No information was given on what we were getting included in our...More

The best way to see Mount Rushmore is with a guide. It is great without one but having a good guide allows you to understand the history and symbolism in this iconic American symbol. Be sure to watch the movie when you are there.

We visited Mount Rushmore as part of our bucket list. It is a bit of a scenic and winding drive to the memorial, with some stops for scenic pictures, but eventually you get to a booth where you can buy a parking pass, which is...More

Good morning Glen, The walkways are 100% accessible, from your car to the main part of the museum I would say is about a 10 minute walk. There are elevators are in both the garage and museum.

There is a spot before entering the parking area where you can get a great view but that would be it. If you go to Custer State Park and take the Needles Highway, there are several pull outs for great views of Mount... More
