A massive stone carving honoring the Oglala Lakota warrior and hero Crazy HorseCrazy Horse Memorial has the potential to become the world’s largest sculpture at 195 m (641 ft) wide and 172 m (563 ft) high. This memorial was originally commissioned by Chief Henry Standing Bear in 1948 and has yet to be completed. The monument is located in the Black Hills, a land sacred to Lakota culture, only 27 km (17 mi) away from Mount Rushmore. Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski’s widow now oversees the ongoing work and the education of visitors on Native American culture. Entrance fees support the continued construction of this work in progress, as the sculpture receives no federal or state funding.

Crazy Horse Memorial Reviews
this is one of the few monuments that pictures, actually look better than the real thing, not worth spending your time or any money to donate and see this in person, see a picture and be happy. more »
This was one of my favorite stops on our long trip. The history is amazing. Take the time to sit through the 15 minute film. You can take a $4 bus ride to get closer but we felt we had a great... more »
Today's visit was my fourth. Each time has been an all new experience. The entire place changes greatly. Always new additions and expanses. The museum is beautiful and I hope it is seen as a great honor to American Indians. Be sure to visit and save a couple of hours during your vacation to the Black Hills. You will need to explore because there a number of doors and hallways where you are welcome. Make sure that you come back again in a year or two because it will have changed. I see that the a number of people are complaining of the price or lack of info on the website. First, the information is on the site. Second, it is $10 or $12 for everything in the Back Hills. The $30 is per car for more than 2 people so if there are 3 people, it is $10 and so on. Bus rides are $4. Also remember there is no government funding for this endeavor. Please take the time to understand the full scope. This is a National Museum, school, and Memorial.
One of the most breathtaking memorials in all of America. An incredible tribute to Crazy Horse and the Native American tribes. Arrive early to enjoy the full experience. Be sure to take a rock of the mountain and tour all the different rooms. I recommend watching the movie when you first arrive to learn about this history of the mountain and the family and community who make this creation possible. The face is complete and we hope to see what project is completed next.
