Visited yesterday for Little Big Horn Days. First saw the re-enactment. It was terrific, you really got your money's worth. Next visited the historical museum. Loved the exhibits here & the interpreters. They really took their time to talk to you. Very informative & interesting!

Spent the better part of the day here. Watched the re-enactment of Custards last stand. It was 20 per person and not quite worth it. It was a bit too long and tedious. But overall, it was a very informative day.

A very historical and authentic visit into the late 1800's. Uniforms of the military and the Indian apparel is beautiful. Everyone should stop and see for a donation of 5.00.

Is the "Mother Mary" and "Jesus" statues still here at the musem? They are full size statues maybe located in the church? They were donated many many years ago. I was just curious to know if they were still there.

They didn't make any impression on me, but my husband would have noticed. I asked and he does not remember seeing them. But not all the buildings were open
