I was impressed with the amount of military information available in this little museum. I assumed the museum would only have info on the fort but it covered every military operation in the area, which included info on munition igloos that were built in the area during WW II and the armies use of Italian POWs and Japanese interment POWs....

I was expecting a Fort , but it was a ordinary older white two story house. The couple that were the tour guides actually live in the house . If your staying in Sidney, this would be good to see, but you would be disappointed if you drove 50 miles . There was only three rather small rooms full of... More

Well done. I received a personal tour of the museum and the Commander's House. The staff was very friendly.

Sidney has amazing history. The museum board has put much effort to present the stuff in a fantastic manor. My favorite is the room dedicated to the Sioux Army depot. Very cool stuff in there.

This museum is located in a non-descript, residential section of Sidney, Nebraska, and can be a little difficult to locate if you aren't travelling with a GPS. Any effort required to reach The Fort Sidney Museum is energy well spent. On Sundays, which happened to be our arrival day, the museum doesn't open until 1PM. We arrived just in time... More

Our Nebraska Passport Adventure concluded our Memorial Day Weekend with a visit to the Fort Sidney Museum. This was a truly interesting experience, with the community of Sidney donating many of the artifacts and antiques that are housed in this museum. There are some really unique pieces in this museum!!! We enjoyed our tour with our guide, who then walked... More

I was expecting at least some remnants of a fort, but no. An old house that was the post commanders home and some old military hardware, limited hours, on a small side street with a very small sign. Don't go out of your way.

This museum is not handicap accessible to upstairs. That being said, it is certainly worth the time. Full of history and the guide is simply amazing. She has a deep love and appreciation for the museum - and is quite knowledgable. You will need to make an appointment during fall/winter months.

This is a place to take children and grandchild so they get an understanding how their grandparents or even great-grandparents lived back in time. Christmas time is a fun time to go, since it is decorated nicely for people to visit. Must see when in SIdney.
