    Great place to visit for any history fanatic, or anyone for that matter. A huge amount of Missouri's history. A must see for a Civil War buff.

    Short visit for a small park. Visitor center is well laid out, and had some nice exhibits. A few were not functioning. The grounds are maintained bit the fort has very little information inside the old fort itself.

    Very informative museum and grounds. My kids even enjoyed the visit here. Staff was excellent.

    It's nice I guess and there are reenactments of the battle but there's not much to do or see here.
