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.

We almost didn't stop, but decided to enter. There is so much more to do and see here than we ever imagined. We had no idea of the huge plans the foundation has for the site, far beyond the sculpture itself, which is magnificent. There...More

We stopped here before we visited Mount Rushmore. We are very glad that we did. This is a privately funded memorial to Native Americans. It started in 1948 and continues today. It is a very aggressive portrayal of Chief Crazy Horse pointing to the Black...More

Visiting the Crazy Horse Memorial allows you to see much more than the ongoing sculpting process. While the mountain sculpture is enormously impressive, it is the Native American exhibits that will keep you enthralled for hours. The artifacts are beautifully preserved and all of the...More

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
