Lincoln Borglum Visitor Center

Located below the Grand View Terrace, this building houses two theaters, a museum and a Mount Rushmore Bookstore. The film, "Mount Rushmore, The Shrine," is shown every 20 minutes in each theater. The museum exhibits tell the story of Gutzon Borglum, the creation of Mount Rushmore and the workers who helped.

Due to the opportunity to address deferred maintenance projects, the Lincoln Borglum Visitor Center will not be available for the early part of 2020.
