The Rushmore Borglum Story museum in
Keystone covers some
of the same material as the Mount Rushmore
Interpretive Center at Mt.
Rushmore. The focus of the Borglum Story however
is more about the
artist as a person.
a self-guided tour of the museum using talking
"wand sticks" that
explain various displays. The museum also
shows a film which
explains how Mt. Rushmore was carved, however much
of this information
is also available at Mt. Rushmore. Unique
to the museum
is a large collection of Gutzon Broglum's other
and sculptures including a large bronze of
Lincoln which is
outside and a relief of a project Borglum started
at Stone Mountain, Georgia.
