We really loved the monument. It was very educational, had a great information centre and 5 mile drive to take in the battlefield. Really well done and great to see some recognition for the Warriors as well - finally. We spent a lot more time...More

This was a great look back into western history and the famous Last Stand. I've read about it and watched documentaries on TV but until you stand where they stood you probably can't really appreciate the enormity of the historic event. The free audio description...More

The layout and the written and audio narrative helped better understand this battle. Walking the terrain, visiting the artifacts in the Visitor Center, walking through the Native American Monument, the signs, the markers and booklet, were so good! Glad I went!

If you visit the Custer Battlefield Museum down the road, you have to come here afterwards. A surreal and humbling place where you can see the original grave areas of the soldiers who died in the battle. Also, a fitting memorial to the American Indians...More

Another place important to American history and very well laid out. There are markers for where the players fell, and it was remarkable to stand a short step away from Where Custer actually died. There is a visitor centre which gave excellent historical comment.

Outstanding film in visitor center and trail markers for what happened on June 25, 1776. The whole story of the battle and what led up to that fateful day are presented in great historical detail. Monuments show where soldiers and Indian warriors fell and give...More

Our trip to Little Big Horn Battlefield National Monument was very educational. You need to see the video in the visitor center to understand the history. Our family history was not involved but we were moved to tears. Next time I leave money at an...More

Just realized we will be driving right past this Monument. Driving from Yellowstone to Mt. Rushmore so we will only have an hour or so to stop. best advice for such a brief visit? I love history and wish I had days to visit but it is what it is.

We will be driving from Yellowstone to Chicago in late May/early June and would like to make stops at Little Bighorn, Mt. Rushmore, and Badlands National Park. Google says the trip will involve 22 hours of driving. How much time would you suggest is needed to view Little Bighorn (view visitor center, walk the grounds, etc.)? Thank you very much for any suggestions you might offer.
