|Facility:||Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument|
|Description:||A visitor center and museum contains exhibits relating to the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn in which 210 US Cavalrymen, led by Colonel George A. Custer, were wiped out by Sioux and Northern Cheyenne warriors. The Museum features exhibits of the history of the battle, Custer, weapons, archaeology, Plains Indian life, and a walking tour with interpretive markers. It is wheelchair accessible. Adjoining the visitor center is Custer National Cemetery, which includes interments from abandoned frontier military posts, the world wars, Korea and Vietnam.
A 4.5 mile self-guiding tour road connects two separate battlefields, the Custer Battlefield and the Reno-Benteen Battlefield. Handicapped parking is located at these two locations and at the visitor center.
Ranger programs are scheduled throughout the summer, and bus tours of the battlefield operate from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. During the off-season a 17-minute documentary film is shown at the visitor center.
