Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a massive sculpture carved into Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills region of South Dakota.

Completed in 1941 under the direction of Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln, the sculpture’s roughly 60-ft.-high granite faces depict U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

The site also features a museum with interactive exhibits. 

MT RUSHMORE

Your tour begins at an iconic South Dakota landmark

This 4 hour narrated tour takes us through the Black Hills to America’s Shrine of Democracy. There is a 14 minute video narrated by Tom Brokaw about the carving, the sculptor Gutzon Borglum, and workers.

The Lincoln Borglum Museum has some great displays about Borglum, his family and his works, the mountain and machinery and the workers.

The Presidential Trail is a gradually inclining walk that goes under the faces in the rock rubble with great spots for pictures of the individual faces. If you go further there is a strenuous walk down to the Sculptor’s Studio (open only in the summer months) then back up to the viewing terrace.

The Avenue of Flags represents all 50 states and the territories, along with their respective dates of admission to the Union. There is also a new Youth Exploration area recently opened.

The large gift shop has many items. In the summer Nick Clifford, the only surviving worker of the 400 that worked on the mountain, talks to people and autographs his book about Mt. Rushmore. The Carvers’ Café and an ice cream shop are available for refreshments.

As we leave we stop for a picture at the side profile of George Washington.
