We visited there last summer and loved the museums and interpretive center. The Natives are constructing this on their own land, their own way, hence declining the federal funds. The film in the interpretive center explained it nicely. There is no timetable for completion apparently. I do recommend it though



Steve-The museums were definitely a must-see at the site. I wish I'd had more time to really enjoy watching some of the craftspeople at work while we were there. I also wish I'd had the space at home or the money to bring home some of the beautiful quilts, rugs and jewelry available at the shop.
The idea that they're doing the entire project without federal funds is pretty fascinating.

We enjoyed our days in, and around, Custer. We're hoping to get back and spend more time in the Dakotas in the next few years as we were only able to squeeze a couple of extra days for them on the way to and from a longer trip to Wyoming and Montana.

A very informative article. I need to travel through the region the next time I'm down south. It would great to see this work in progress and visit all the museums.


Alan-We didn't realized we'd enjoy both South and North Dakota as much as we did. Our original plan was to go back and just do those two states on a longer trip in summer 2010, but a lot will depend on the job and school situation here.
