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.

The sheer size of the Memorial as you enter is impressive. The history and the slow progress due to a promise made is worth hearing at the informative video. Please be aware that is a bit difficult to use a wheelchair at this site. There...More

It was great to go there, it is not completed though. It will take another 65 years to complete, and this Memorial started in 1948. This is so exciting to see if you visit the Black Hills! You will enjoy it!

$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.
