If you love the history of the American west it is a must see. So much history in this area from Indian battles, range wars, outlaws, cowboys and life on the trail and in the old west.

The best thing about this museum was the guide who knew his information inside and out! His breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm made the museum come alive!

Although off-season, the fort rooms are closed, we were free to roam about, peer in windows, read the panel explanations around the fort. And inside, the museum was very informative, interesting and worthy of spending your time learning, touching, and contemplating. Well done exhibits.

This is a very well preserved example of old west forts. The grounds are nice and there is informative signs throughout the grounds. It gives you a glimpse of the hard life that soldiers endured in these remote forts.

Great piece of American history. Nice reconstruction of barracks and living quarters of soldiers during the Indian Wars. Visitor centre has good display of local interest. Well worth the price of admission.
