Special Directions

The Custer Battlefield Museum is located in the historic town Garryowen at Exit 514 on I-90, just south of the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Interstate highway access takes just an hour from either Billings, Montana, or from Sheridan, Wyoming. The museum is located on the grassy riverbank where the Battle of the Little Bighorn began when Major Reno's troops attacked Sitting Bull's camp here on June 25, 1876. A major highlight on the museum grounds is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where one of the first Seventh Cavalry fell dead. The 'Peace Monument', which is the first new monument built on the battlefield since 1928.
