Experiences at Mount Rushmore
There’s so much more to see and do when you visit the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The site itself is home to the Sculptor’s Studio, the Lincoln Borglum Museum, the Avenue of Flags, hiking trails, Junior Ranger Programs for kids, interpretive ranger-led activities and the Evening Sculpture Lighting Ceremony.
At The Park
A short stroll along the Presidential Trail will provide close access to the sculpture. More intimate views of the artwork are available along the way as either a self-guided or ranger-guided walk.
Ranger-led activities are conducted daily during the summer. Visit the exhibit hall which features interactive exhibits through which you can learn more about the men and methods used to create Mount Rushmore.
