A most interesting way to learn about over 200 years of Military history through interactive exhibits, informative displays and information panels. A wonderful way to spend a few hours

The Fort Trumbull state park is a gem... $6 fee well worth it, great little museum dedicated to the Fort and its role in US History...from the Revolutionary war to the Cold... More

I would like to see more information on the fort /eg. interactive displays etc...and even regular costumed guides and a cafe that... More
