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.

What's impressive isn't so much the memorial itself as the progress its creator and his family have made with private funding and sheer strength of will. The visitor center itself is well done, and has both a movie about the monument's construction and various museum-type...More

The Crazy Horse Memorial site is an expansive facility. Not only do you get to see the sculptured face of Crazy Horse, but it is still a work in progress. The completed stone sculpture will be larger than Mount Rushmore. The visitor center has an...More

This monument had been under construction for over 50 years. Looks the same as it did 15 years ago. Privately owned, the family is happy to take your 28 dollars to see a monument they Will never even try to finish. I would skip this...More

Very impressive! The monument is still in progress. Wish I could be there when it is done. Learn why Crazy Horse was chosen for this monument - great story. The visitor center appears to be relatively new. Very well done. Food is diner-style food -...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.
