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.

A little disappointed to find that they have been working on it for 70 years and you see the side of Crazy Horse's head and the hole under his arm. We understand that it is all done with only the money from the admission tickets...More

Before you drive towards the memorial, pull off to the side of the road. The view is the same when you pull over and when you go inside. The price of admission varies and you are still far from the sculpture. The museum is nice...More

This is only my opinion, and the opinion of the three other travelers who traveled with me, and I by no means want to seem rude or disrespectful, but this place is a tourist trap. Do not expect to see the memorial up close without...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.
