  • 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 »

  • This fort has a lot to offer, including a large museum in the visitor center, and faithful recreations of the interiors of most of the buildings present on the site. Most are fully furnished with period correct furniture and personal effects that really give you a great look at how the soldiers and others stationed at this fort lived. The buildings are made of a soft sandy stone, and it was interesting to look at the signatures and other marks made by previous visitors, many of which were well over 100 years old. If you can tune out the various farm buildings and other modern things that are present on the horizon, it's easy enough to imagine how lonely this place would have been when it was being used as a home for the soldiers who protected the US Mail on its way across the plains.
  • This place is awesome! Fort was well stocked with period items and the entire fort was well maintained. This place is a must see.
  • This place is great for families and anyone else who likes history. You can see the officers quarters, barracks, hospital, bread bakery, leather working, blacksmith, and other buildings. This place is a fun place for anyone wanting to study history, or just have fun.
  • Great place. Spent a couple of hours and had fun with the kids. Really enjoyed the history.
  • They do a great job of preserving our military history, really bring the past to life.
