I live pretty close to Mount Rushmore, but I go every summer because of how much meaning and history stands behind it. If you ever get the chance to come to Keystone, try to make Mount Rushmore one of your stops. You will not regret...More

Once your in 1 to 2 hours max unless seeing a presentation or special event. Serious photographers might need more time. Gift shop 20 to 30 mins. This was a great stop and on way home to Missouri.
