This is a great place to learn about frontier army life. The fort buildings and their furnishings help you really picture what it might have been like to be in a frontier fort in the 1800s. The little museum inside provides a nice respite from the heat and had good exhibits on the history of central Wyoming. My elementary school-aged... 更多
This is an interesting little museum. I enjoyed the fort and its furnishings from the time period. It isn't a large time consuming display, but is affordable. It would bea good place to take children as they can run around outside from building to building and travel back in time by seeing how people lived back in " the day".
Fort is a CCC reconstruction that occurred long enough ago that even the reconstruction is historical. We were fortunate enough to be the first people stopping there for the morning and the director asked us to accompany him as he opened up the various buildings. Not sure he doubles as a docent, but he knew enough of the history and... 更多
This fort/ museum was very enjoyable. We learnt a lot about the travel of people through the West. The staff were very informative and we spent more time than planned.
This fort was reconstructed in 1936 so it is very old and in the footprints of the early fort. The Indian battles fought near here are historic. The early crossing of the Platte river happened here. The visitor center has over 800 books on all subjects for the area and the time period.
If you're going to be in Caspar you should really check this place out. I'm a bit of a history geek and was pleasantly surprised at the setup of this regional history museum. Excellent examples of buildings, etc. Admission is super cheap, and this is a great place to spend an afternoon soaking up a little history.
A really well set up museum that follows a timeline through the history of the region. Outside is a recreation (from the 1930s) of the 19th century fort complex. There's not a whole lot to do in Casper, so this should be at the top of your list.
This is a good museum for those interested in western history, the fort, and traveling exhibits dealing with the Wild West. They do special events, also, like the haunted fort tour and the Candlelight Christmas with re-enactors. Overall, worth the visit.
Fort Casper was an army station. I went in the snow to imagine how it look. The museum it self is small but alot of info. The cost is minimal so worth going if you have time. The gift shop has something for everyone, very nice. Coffee mugs are a good price with many selections as well as shirts.
