Great historical recreation of cavalry outpost hosting many buildings and all contain period furniture, uniforms, and supplies. Very nicely done. Also has a very nice inside museum of local history. $3 covers all and self-guided tour not overly time-consuming. Small gift store but quite an array of books for purchase for the history buffs. Well worth a look-see and enjoyable... More

This museum covers the history of Fort Caspar. The museum in the main building is nicely set up and has interesting information. Outside is the fort replica. There are not too many buildings, but overall this museum is worth a stop.

In town for a business meeting with a spare 90 minutes so I came to check out Ft Casper. Nice museum, small gift shop, and quite a few outbuildings with period furniture and other items. Friendly and helpful staff. $3 admission fee.

A bit out of the way and a bit "plastic" although there is a bit of history with the Mormon Trail in the grounds.

Museum inside but was fun walking around outside to see buildings. Really enjoyed finding out more about Caspar and Casper, WY and how it all began.

We went there on our way to south Dakota and what a pleasant surprise. So much history and the people were helpful and full of information. So glad we went.

The museum and historic site were very informative, with pictures, artifacts and stories of the settling of the Casper area and Wyoming. Walking through the historic site and peering into the reconstructed fort was like taking a trip back in time.

It was interesting to a point but it didn't take very long to go thru and there was no explanatory video to explain exactly what you were seeing. It was interesting to see the buildings set up and containing the things they would have held when the soldiers lived there. There was also a display in the museum comparing the... More

This is a great place to visit with grade school age children. A ton of history and accurate rebuilds of a plains fort. Some of the displays are very old though. And the buildings are frequently locked. If you've never visited such a place, it's worth a visit. But be on the lookout for other forts around the state which... More
