I very much enjoyed going to this memorial. You are not able to get very close because it is under construction. There is a museum that is mostly about the Warriors that fought Custer. The gift shop is beautiful - all of the structures are...More

This is another must-see. It's difficult to realize how huge it is - they say the Mt. Rushmore figures would fit in the head! There's a nice visitor center with an interesting film about the sculptor and how the memorial was done, artifacts from Indians...More

We really enjoyed our visit here and found it to be one of our favorite places to visit in the Black Hills area. There is plenty of great views of the mountain sculpture and they have a very nice documentary movie about the man and...More

My first visit was 26 years ago. Amazing then and even more now. I don't know if I will live long enough to see the total finished monument. But it is the story behind this sculpture that proves that men can dream, and we should...More

We did not spend much time here, but we did take the bus tour up to the monument. There is a charge for parking and then an additional $4/person charge for the bus tour. On the bus you do learn more about the memorial. There...More

On our day of exploration we set out to see Crazy Horse first (before Rushmore). I thought we'd breeze in and out and be on our way to the "big event"... Fooled me! Crazy Horse is amazing. It's huge, still in progress and has a...More

This is a monument site that highlights Native culture and tells the story of the monument. Very little of Crazy Horses story is here. So do your homework ahead of time.

I plan on stopping at Crazy Horse around 8PM on June 1st. Is it still daylight enough to see the mountain? Is there an extra charge to see the light show? Will crowds be an issue?

Not sure, I would say yes based on the time of year
RE: Crazy Horse Memorial and Volksmarch. We're planning a trip to visit Mt. Rushmore and do some of the scenic drives in the area. If time allows, I thought an hour or two at the Crazy Horse Memorial might be worth a side trip. However, upon further exploration I see that we will likely be there the same weekend as the 2017 Volksmarch (June 3 & 4). My question is this: how busy/crowded is the Volksmarch likely to be? If particularly busy, it may not be worthwhile to try and visit during that time. Thanks for any feedback you have.

I would suggest visiting at another time if possible. The roads in the area are two lane and can become congested when special events are held. The Memorial is worth the visit but you need to have time to tour the exhibits... More

It depends on the extent of your visit. What I mean is that you can view from a distance at the visitors center which is a long way off but still very visible due to its size. We did this and were there about an hour taking... More
