  • Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Museum is a must see if you are at all interested in The Battle of the Little Bighorn. They also have the tomb of the unknown soldier which was cool because that's where the phrase "Bury the Hatchet" comes from. Not to mention they have great BBQ brisket served next door in the restaurant 10/10.
  • Very impressive, especially for a museum of its size. A must-see if you are looking for the "battlefield experience." Highly recommend watching the 45-minute film included with admission, as it will completely change your view on the battle; the account given by historian Steve Adelson is unbiased and thorough. The museum interns are knowledgeable and friendly. All-in-all, well worth the $7.50 admission.
  • This place has history where others could read about it. If you get a chance and your passing through here stop by and see what you could only read about. I strongly recommend this place to the people it has a gift shop museum gas station food all in one stop.
