  • Grew up in fort Dodge, spent many days here as a child and always had a great time. Living in Chicago now and was back visiting family. We drove by and my 12-year old son asked what this was so I took him in thinking we'd be in and out in 30 minutes. We spent 3 hours there and he had a great time. For a total of $10 admission for the two of us, money very well spent.
  • This museum is a good place to go if you want to learn about ft dodge and about the time it was created
  • As I'm from Great Britain we have nothing like this back home. interesting to see how people lived here in the 1800's
  • Awesome venue. Great reception spot.
  • Nice older museum with a lot to see.
