  • We have a modest interest in forts, so visited here. It is a self guided tour through the reconstruction, but is informative and interesting. The admission fee is modest, and the visitors' center has ...  more »
  • In spite of the massacre that occurred, the fort is a great look back at the life of early Wyoming. A nice break, easy walking path & a chance to stretch your legs.  more »
  • We learned a lot about WY history in a casual atmosphere. The staff was helpful and kind. We enjoyed the walk to see the outside buildings and stroll down by the river and bridge.  more »

  • Knowledgeable and friendly staff! Amazing job recreating the fort. Recommend visiting here to any traveler interested in American Westward Expansion. Only suggestion I have is for the indoor museum; the Native American portion of the museum is far to small. It’s size misrepresents the amount of presence the early tribes had on the land as well as the relationship built when the fort was being established. They’re role in the history of fort Casper deserves more than the back corner of the museum, period.
  • We happened to arrive just as Rick, their curator, was opening the little exhibit buildings so he gave a little private tour to out of state relatives. They were very impressed with the quality exhibits and history. Our relatives are big history buffs and told us they have seen few museums who had such an extensive local history displayed so well and they have been all over the world. That is why I gave this 5 stars.
  • I grew up not far from Fort Casper, and I've visited twice in the past 30 years. I continue to be amazed that such a small town has such a great historical landmark like this. The museum building is top notch, with a great bookstore/gift shop and wonderful exhibits, but the buildings outdoors are the real stars. Anyone who has ever been to Colonial Williamsburg (in Virginia) knows how it feels, wandering thru history. Fort Casper is the living history of the Old West. And if you like Fort Casper, go see Fort Laramie too.
  • Cool place with cool things had some of the old war stuff
  • Amazing place when u consider the history and what those pioneers went through.
