    I had a few hours to kill and this museum was close by. Wow! If you are into military history, it is well worth it. The location at old Fort Douglas is easy to find and fairly well marked. Parking was...  more »

    We got to the museum as a field trip was there. Lots and lots of kids. However that did not take away from our visit. The place has plans to expand in the future. A nice museum at a great price.  more »

    Loved getting to visit Fort Douglas! I was so interested in learning about this and had seen that it was a local museum that was free so that was SUPER appealing. The people were so friendly and it was really cool getting to know them and learn about what it was like in the military. I have a tremendous amount of respect and just reverence for anyone who either does serve in our military now or has in the past. There's so many different positions and things to be done but everyone selflessly making that brace decision To go is what helps everyone else along the way. So cool to learn how long this place has been around!!!! It's amazing and ton of historical stuff from way back when that they have preserved and taken good care of. Totally worth checking out and donate to keep them afloat! They are completely self sufficient so any and everything helps. They also sell cool gifts in their which is great cuz they have something for everyone. 😃

    Well put together. Had a great docent. His information was very heartfelt.

    I'm not generally a fan of military museums, but I was here on vacation and my father wanted to go, so I came along. The museum was a surprisingly good. We received a tour from the front desk man cum docent. I also enjoyed walking around the back of the museum and checking out all the vintage military equipment.

    Huge array of decommissioned military vehicles. Also supposedly so hunted that the ghost hunting crew didn't want to explore it.

    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.
