The largest mountain carving in the world is gradually taking shape in the Black Hills of South Dakota. And if you are in great shape, you might be able to join this onsite tours headed upside this feature. Base camp is nearby at the Indian Museum of North America.
The Crazy Horse Memorial mountain crew uses precision explosive engineering to carefully and safely remove and shape the rock of the Mountain. Since the dedication of the face of Crazy Horse in 1998, the work has been focused on blocking out the horse’s head.
A network of about a dozen benches will be cut out around the horse’s head. The benches serve to block out the head to within 20 feet of the final surface of the horse’s head, while providing access roads for the heavy equipment used to drill holes for loading explosives and to remove loose rock after each blast.
Indian Lore Museums
Tribal Flag Collection
The INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA is home to an extraordinary collection of art and artifacts reflecting the diverse histories and cultures of the American Indian people. The museum, designed to complement the story being told in stone on the mountain, speaks eloquently to present and future generations about American Indian life.
