  • Couldn't think of a better way to honor our veterans that to learn some history about those who served here at Ft Douglas. Staffed by a great bunch of friendly, knowledgeable vets. Interesting exhibits with some great artifacts.
  • Museum is interesting and its free. However its very small. I walked the entire place in about 10 minutes. It could be better...
  • Great little museum. Free to enjoy. Located within the Fort Douglas National Historic Landmark and the focus of the Fort Douglas area history. They have some actives scheduled every month or so and they have active websites and facebook accounts that I have found useful. The best day to visit is during the Annual Fort Douglas Day in June. Also, don't forget to visit the nearby Fort Douglas Cemetery- great history there including German POWs killed after WWII during the Salina Massacre.
  • Very interesting museum and a hidden treasure among campus. Includes a lot of history of the area while focusing on the impact of the military in the West. Would highly recommend to those interested in military history.
  • Great museum. Keeping it running is an act of love by dedicated individuals.
