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.

I have it 4 stars for the view of Crazy Horse and idea, but have to tell you it was too structured (everything has a price) for me! I’ll drive by but won’t go in again.

We visited the Crazy Horse Memorial in late October and really enjoyed it. The visitor's center has HUGE windows and so many people can experience the gorgeous view of the memorial at the same time. There is a large outside deck as well. The video...More

Beautiful and grandiose, Crazy Horse is more than a monument - it's story still being told, one man's dream, one people's history. To start off our visit, we took a guided bus tour. We took the bumpy rode in an old school bus, which made...More

The mountain sculpture is not done yet but the museum on site was very well done. It had many beautiful feather headdresses, leather clothing with beads, beaded moccasins, and many other items of interest. I was pleasantly surprised.

The sculpture, the mission and the persistence on display here all impress me very much. Much has been accomplished since I first saw it in 1974. Ziolkowski and Standing Bear (not Longmire’s sidekick) were dreamers of the highest degree and I applaud their vision. I...More

We wanted to go see Crazy horse. We found out that it costs $11 per person. That would have been $22 for my husband and I. We felt that was too much because it's not completed yet. We left and pulled over on the side...More

It was raining when we drove past, so we drove up the drive to get a better look. There was no where to turn around and we then had to go thru and pay admission. They had the model put away so that you could...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.
