Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument


When we take a road trip, we make a point to visit the places that we study about in American History. Some of these places commemorate celebrations of victory and other places represent battles between different cultures. When we were in Montana this past summer, we made sure to visit Little BigHorn Battlefield National Monument to learn more about this part of our American history. Here are some things to know before you visit!

Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

There is an entrance fee to enter the Battlefield but if you have your National Park Pass you can enter for FREE.

Visitors Center & Museum

Start your visit of Little BigHorn Battlefield with a self guided tour of the Visitors Center & Museum to learn about the US Army’s 7th Cavalry and the Lakotas and Cheyennes in one of the Indian’s last armed efforts to preserve their way of life. Here on June 25 and 26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the US Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. 


Ranger Led Programs

If you want to learn more, you can attend the 30-45 minute program “Battle Talk” given by a Park Ranger – no ticket required (scheduled). There will be announcements throughout the day as to when the next program begins.

Visit the Memorials & Monument

Take a short walk up the hill to visit Custer’s Last Stand Hill / 7th Cavalry Monument and then continue around the path to the Indian Memorial. There is also a driving tour that you can take to tour the full battlefield.

Custer National Cemetery

Walk along the graves of known and unknown veterans of our nation’s wars, including women and children from isolated frontier posts, Indian scouts, and Medal of Honor recipients.
