  • 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.
  • If you are a history geek you will like it. My brother and I were up on the mountain in the background looking for artifacts. That's were the Confederate soldiers had to cannons shelling the fort
  • 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.
