Drive up to the parking lot, park up and visit the Visitor Centre and Museum. Before exploring the battlefield try and catch one of the excellent Park Ranger talks, held outside at the rear of the visitors centre. These are excellent and will help bring...More

Very nice monument depicting a tragedy for both sides of the battle. There are no picnic tables, but benches and grassy areas to eat a meal. The museum had some interesting memorabilia. The last stand monument and cemetery were touching.

Not sure what I expected, but the video and ranger presentation were much better than expected. A presentation of both points of view was part of the excellence of the visit. It makes you think of how far we've come in 140 years. Not there...More

You need about 90 minutes to either have a ranger talk or movie before touring the site. We used the audio cell connection which worked very well for us. Lots of history, good and bad. Very informative rangers. Good junior ranger program.

Very interesting. The rangers talk was most informative and it was great to get the story of Custer's last stand from both sides. Something I was never taught in school. The different gravesites were very moving. Definitely worth the time to visit.

I normally am not so affected emotionally when visiting a war memorial that the experience lodges in the back of my mind for months, maybe years, after the encounter. I was afflicted/affected while wandering amongst the hills, grasses, and gravestones scattered about the U.S. Park...More
