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.

On the way to Mt. Rushmore on the 4th of July we passed the Crazy Horse Memorial. The sculpture was started in the 1940s and is still under construction, but the real attraction is the extensive Native American museum. It is a must visit sight,...More

I have heard of crazy horse before, but never much about it until I was going to visit Mount Rushmore and a friend recommended I stop here too. Wow I was happy I went. It is far from done, but they are making progress and...More

I realize that this rock/mountain carving is larger than Mt. Rushmore and according to the literature, no federal funds are being used in the construction but given that this has been going on for 70 something years - the end result will not be completed...More

I'm sorry but $28 for me and 2 children to visit this? the center is nice but my money was better spent in every other place we visited. My kids (ages 7 and 11) asked to leave after 15 minutes. You can see the monument...More

This is an ambitious project that might not be finished in my life time (and I'm pushing for another 60 plus years). This will dwarf Mount Rushmore when it's completed. The visitor centre and museum were surprisingly large. I learned a lot and could have...More

I am wondering when this memorial will be finished myself? The rock formation doesn't seem to increase over the year.

We stopped here to just stretch our legs as we had been driving all day, and needed a break. So glad we did. Though the only disappointment was the fact that the memorial was not completed (we knew it wasn't going to be.), we found...More

We had low expectations of this park but in fact from beginning to end our experience was one of the highlights of our visit to South Dakota. This is not a private attempt to part tourists from their money (as we had expected) but a...More

I actually thought this was more interesting than Mt Rushmore, even though the monument is not done yet. Obviously from a photography standpoint, Mt Rushmore is probably better, but there is a limited amount of other things to do there. The Crazy Horse Memorial has...More

We were thoroughly disappointed in this exhibit. It smacked of an attempt to profiteer off of our native culture with a poorly run and exhibited 'museum'. It has great potential to educate and celebrate a culture but it just falls short and we are not...More

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
