  • We took our family to the Fort Larned National Historic Site. I am highly allergic to wasps, and bees. We could barely go in and look at any of the exhibits as the whole place was swarmed with bees. W...  more »
  • I was only the third one there the day I visited and one of the rangers met me on the sidewalk. Very interesting place to go to for a windy walk.  more »
  • A few buildings remain and there is a walking tour through the post. It's worth a quick stop. It will be windy and hot if you visit in summer. It shows how isolated life on the plains must have been.  more »

  • Well worth the visit of you are passing by. The grounds and the buildings are incredibly well kept. Just wandering from building to building will easily take a couple of hours. Make sure you visit the visitor centre first and watch the introductory movie for a better idea of the history of not only the Fort but the Santa Fe Trail as well. The kids and myself learnt quite a lot and all told spent around 3 hours here. Kids will especially enjoy the junior ranger program. Allow 2 to 3 hours but if you are in a rush you could experience most of the Fort in an hour.
  • Wonderful place to learn about history. Staff is wonderful and they employ students as well. Great place for families
  • Definitely worth stopping for! The living conditions of the early soldiers and their families is replicated down to the last detail! If there was one drawback to the site would be that of the excessive amounts of hornets/wasps that have taken residence in the buildings. As with all NHS/NP's, the Rangers are always a wealth of information and assistance. Make sure that if you have children that you participate in the Junior Ranger program as well!
  • An enjoyable history lesson! Stuff to do and see for adults and children alike. Took us about 3 hours really taking our time. 5 stars because it's all FREE! Kids really loved watching the blacksmith do his thing. Park staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Check the calendar for special events and plan to attend!
  • An amazingly preserved Fort with a lot of history. Since it's away from town, you can easily feel like you've gone back to the 1860s. Well worth the stop.
