  • My daughter and I loved visiting Fort Union Trading Post. We made it a little detour on our drive from Devil's Tower National Monument to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It was a great way to learn about frontier trading. The Junior Ranger--sorry, Junior Trader--program was one of the best. In all, give yourself a couple of hours to see everything. The rangers were very nice and knowledgeable. It's definitely worth a stop on a trip across the northern U.S.
  • An interesting place to visit and learn about the history of the peoples in this area. Lots of things to see, the visitors center is full of great gift ideas.
  • Cool old landmark in the middle of nowhere. Made the detour on our trip just to break up the drive across North Dakota and Montana. Worth checking out if you're into history and the frontier.
  • If you like history, this is certainly a place to check out.
  • First visit the other day, I loved it. Lots of history
