We planned our road-trip vacation to insure we would see this historical site. The visitors center and entire battlefield are so well presented that we ended up spending much more time there than we had anticipated. To see the markers where each soldier fell strewn...More

This Battlefield is known as a place for "reflection", and that is certainly true. It is hallowed ground built on tragedy. Begin by watching the explanatory film, but don't miss the ranger interpretive lecture. The ranger tells the story by literally pointing the places where...More

Just down the road from the National Monument before you get there is a re-enactment of the battle. This only takes place on June 25th weekend. The Crow tribe participates. I was impressed how they told the story of the participants. They even had more...More

Looking at the battlefield, we realized the scope of the events. The self guided tour on the map was very informative. Get there when it opens at 8 am; by 10 am the place is packed. The visitors center could be more visitor friendly. Asking...More

Truly one of Americas most famous battles and hallowed ground. The classic clash of two cultures. The Visitors center is a must see to understand the battle. The film and rangers did an excellent job explaining the battle from both whate and Native Americans viewpoints

Went to see the Battlefield. Have read quite a few books about it, but here's the thing about books and battlefields - it makes the most sense when you can stand there amid the topography. In this case Custer divided his column and has been...More

Just realized we will be driving right past this Monument. Driving from Yellowstone to Mt. Rushmore so we will only have an hour or so to stop. best advice for such a brief visit? I love history and wish I had days to visit but it is what it is.

We will be driving from Yellowstone to Chicago in late May/early June and would like to make stops at Little Bighorn, Mt. Rushmore, and Badlands National Park. Google says the trip will involve 22 hours of driving. How much time would you suggest is needed to view Little Bighorn (view visitor center, walk the grounds, etc.)? Thank you very much for any suggestions you might offer.
