“Always nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

I've seen Mount Rushmore many times, but it's a nice stop to stretch your legs. They have multiple trails to walk around and see the faces from different angles.

“History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We have visited Mt. Rushmore as a family twice. This time we did the lighting ceremony at night and then hiking the trail and exhibits the following morning. It worked well. Our kids are 8 and almost 6 and they love Mt. Rushmore.

“a site to be seen -- unbelievable...”

The film shown at the monument was very informative and explained a lot. The work was visible from a far distance, and pictures turned out very well.

“Something every American should see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Every American should see this once. It was educational for my kids and breathtaking. You do not need to allow a lot of time to see Mount Rushmore, in 1.5-2 hrs you can see everything. Worth visiting!
