The reproduction of the historical home was a tribute to the historians bringing together every detail and for those contributing authentic articles to help bring it to life. The "soldier" guide did a good job and the grounds and barracks were also a great tribute to the past. Thoroughly enjoyed our day there exploring all the history with our 11... More

The reproduction of the home is well done, and furnished with some of the original pieces, within. The soldier interpreters know their history well, and will take you back in time to 1875, while in the house. It is not JUST a house tour, ...it's an experience! 90% of tourists say it was WELL worth the pass fee.

Because there were only two of us on the tour we opted out of the living history tour. Nevertheless the guide did a very good job. The house is quite large and it was interesting how much of his own money Custer put into it to make it livable for his family. It shows something of what life was like... More

So much enjoyed our tour through the Custer home led by a gifted re-enactor who played the part of an assistant to General Custer prior to the time when Custer left to meet his fate at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Tour guide pointed out many items throughout the house that had actually been owned by the Custer family.... More

I learned a lot of things I didn't know about him and his wife and children and the fort itself is on the grounds with the house. It;s very awesome, The tour guides are dressed in army atire from that area and talk to as if your back in time, Very cool and I recommend it to everyone.

The Custer House is a great place to see what life on the prairie in the 1870's was like. The interpreters that walk you through the house take you back to the day and stay in character the whole time. This is a great visit to a beautiful part of ND and US history.

We had a guided tour through Custer's house. Our guide had been role playing for Custer's house for 12 years. He was very well informed and a joy to listen to as we went through the house.

It is very interesting to see how they lived and what they had and didn't have available. It is a must see if you like history at all. So much to see out there. Take the tour you will truly enjoy it!
