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.

I was on a Motorcycle trip and visited the Crazy Horse memorial thanks to a recommendation from a friend. There is a small fee you have to pay before you can park. There were plenty of spots and you can see the memorial easily from...More

At first I thought this was just going to be a partially carved rock and a plaque to describe it. The carving is wonderful, however the museum was almost as amazing. There are so many artifacts and displays, you could spend hours in there. And...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.
