  • Enjoyed our visit. Although the exhibits were not huge they were very well done and very informative. The fort mock up is well done and one of the folks there does a super job of explaining the make up and life at the fort. Once you complete the inside walk thru, walk the site to get a feel for the size. Excellent selection of books.
  • Very well educated, friendly and helpful staff. Amazing history which not many Americans know about. Excellent book selection relative to the fort, the Vinegar Trail, the era in America and the Plains Indians. We'll thought out displays inside and outside the interpretive center including the fort grounds, Fetterman battle ridge and the Wagon Box Fight location. We'll worth your time.
  • Amazing and so interesting. Big part of our History.
  • Historic site. Much has fallen down around the original foot print of the surrounding walls. But you can still see where it all was and invasion it in its heyday.
  • Great little Museum...
