I have been here several times and each time I find it to be more interesting than the last. If you get a chance pick up Will Hutchison's book Artifacts of the Battle of Little Bighorn. His photos really bring to life the things of the era they used on the field by both sides. This is one of my... More

A real highlight of our 3500 mile tour from California to South Dakota and back. Ever since I was a child I had been fascinated by the Battle of the Little Bighorn (thanks to an old Waddington's board game) and this was a "must see" for me on our trip. And I was not disappointed. After a very informative and... More

This was one of my favorite stops on our 3500 mile trip. We have 13 and 16 year old boys that really enjoyed it also.We watched the film and then listened to the Park Ranger talk. He was so informative. you could tell that this was his passion and he took it very seriously. He told about the history of... More

I knew about George Custer's last stand as a kid growing up, but having now been at this location and hearing about the events surrounding the days, hours and minutes leading up to what happened, I now have a better understanding of the sacredness of this area. The park ranger (from Virginia) was detailed and very animated in his presentation... More

We visited the Monument (not the cemetery) taking in the video, the Ranger talk and joined one of the Apsaalooke Tours. All were very worthwhile and it was interesting to get the 3 similar but slightly different perspectives of this historical spot. There is a lot of history here and we needed more time than we had planned for. We... More

We spent from 1100 a.m. to 4 p.m. at this site. The employees were very friendly and helpful. Recommend watching the 25 minute video before venturing off on the actual property which is presented in the main building. Wear comfortable footwear if you plan walking around as the terrain does present some challenges (manageable for most). Brochures are available at... More

A very important and impressive monument to American History. The staff is very informative. The Battlefield is well maintained to include audio to hollow historical movements. The battlefield can be walked if you care, handicap accessible.

What a wonderful place to visit. The visitor centre has many artifaces found on the battlefield. You can watch a video that explains the time line of events leading to the battle at Little Big Horn. Then you can walk the grounds and stand on the spot where both sides stood. You can also drive to the end of the... More

Didn't expect much to be here (poor research!) apart from the monuments but there's a huge site, excellent vistor centre, and a full range of programmes explaining what happened here. Ranger talk was brilliant. The long drive out to the furthest point of the battlefield is really helpful in establishing the sheer scale of it all

The Little Big Horn Battlefield tells the story of the numerous native indian tribes battling against the government of the day in order protect their native land. The battlefield has a small gift shop and museum and an excellent 25 minute video introduction to the lead up to the battle and the end result. There are numerous diaramas and maps... More
