We were here a few years ago and planned to visit every five years to see the progress. What an amazing place! They actually made their own tools and materials just as they did years ago, and the children were able to make rope, etc. as they did back then. None of today's machinery was used, they made their own... More

I hate it that I was not able to go to see the Ozark Medieval Fortress before it closed. I only hope that it will reopen when the recession is over. It was a magnificent display of building using original Middle Age methods, right in the middle of the Ozarks. Here's hoping!

Our guide was an incredible historian who educated us about that time period. He was full of information and knew his facts and I was with some very educated people and he could answer and explain all of their questions and correct their information. Seeing how they made rope and the walls was history in the making. Was named one... More

I went with my child on a field trip for school. Not knowing what we were about to discover, the trip was way worth it. It's been showcased on Larry The Cable Guys show also. It was closed earlier this year by the owner for not enough support from people visiting. So sad.

Unfortunately,we too went to visit the fortress only to find it has already shut down and up for sale. This was prior to the earlier review being posted and although we checked several websites there was no indication that the castle was no longer operating tours. I think the owners could at least have put some information on their website... More

I went to the castle, found it completely unlike any tourist experience I'd ever had... but sadly, financial woes have beset the castle and it is now closed. According to a blog post at Arkansas Times, it is unlikely to reopen unless a new investor or owner surfaces... and how likely is that, now that it's just sitting up there... More

My husband and I took our son and grandson to visit the Ozark Medieval Fortress and although I did not check out the reviews before we purchased tickets, some are worth reading but most are very judgmental in my opinion, they seem to forget that back then it took longer to do just about everything and the whole idea for...

The Ozark Medieval Fortress is the site of a real castle being built using Medieval methods. It began in 2009. It is scheduled to be finished in 2030. A costumed guide met us and took us on a tour to the castle construction site all the while telling us about the Medieval period. On the site we were able to... More

$18 each and then they would have charged $2 more each for tour. Should charge less til there is more to see, we were in and out in 30mins and that was walking slowly! There were 3 people working and the walls are only 4 feet high. Save your money and go in 2020 when more is done
