They do have one of the best gift shops in the area! Please go to the lighting ceremony! A one time fee of $11.00 for a car load is an awesome deal when you have a large family! AND it's good for the whole year!...More

I had never been here before, so it was a little confusing to get into and find a place to park. However the monument is excellent and I would recommend it to everyone.

Words cannot describe the feeling you get when you come around the curve and get your first glimpse. Don't think it's too cliche of a vacation destination. It's well worth any drive.

Mt. Rushmore is the most iconic manmade structure in our country. We were on a two night turnaround trip to South Dakota and did not want to rent a car so we hired Affordable Adventure Tours. Our guide picked us up in a comfortable van...More

Good morning Glen, The walkways are 100% accessible, from your car to the main part of the museum I would say is about a 10 minute walk. There are elevators are in both the garage and museum.
