  • $20 flat family rate, amazingly restored/preserved. Learned a lot.
  • Historical site very interesting very good views by the Mississippi River in Fort Madison. Give tours certain time of the year.
  • Great historical venue and a nice spot for family photos!
  • If you're interested in the War of 1812, this replica fort on the Mississippi River depicts life as it was then and the guides are knowledgeable and dressed in period clothing.
  • The tour was 8$ a person. It's self guided but there are costumed staff to answer questions. Had a great time , learned a lot, and got to see one reenacter fire a musket. There's also a lot of cool old documentation, so be sure to flip through the binders laying around.
