The curator was just opening up as we arrived at 8am, and welcomed us in. She was so kind, told us all the information about the fort and the story of the famous battle there, answering our questions with patience and enthusiasm.
After seeing the film, we walked out to the fort site - there isn't much left, as the Indians burnt it down when the army moved on, but I'd rather see the real site than some Disneyesque re-creation, There are informative boards as you go round (some are due for renewal as birds and weather have rendered them illegible). They do have some Indian silhouettes on the hillside which help to orientate you for the battle.
Well worth a visit, I enjoyed it very much. And good preparation for the Little Bighorn battlefield that we visited later that day.
