Visit the place where Guzton Borglum worked from 1939 to 1941 and view the 1/12th scale model of Mount Rushmore. During the summer months, rangers present 15-minute talks here focusing on the workers who helped Borglum create Mount Rushmore and the tools and techniques they used.  The Sculptor's Studio is open each year from late May to the middle of October, weather and staffing levels permitting.
