Much of Casper history is here with many photo opportunities. One of the few great attractions here in Casper. Great for the kids.

The museum is great, but the real treasure is out their back door. Ft. Caspar is still intact. Fun to see how the calvary lived. Great camping area just down the road.

This is a modest attraction but it has excellent displays and the buildings are really lovely. It is better as part of the emigrant experience (see the Casper National Historic Trails Interpretative Center) than it would be on its own. Well worth the hour or so it takes.

It was a quiet day when we visited so was surprised when the attendant could hardly tear herself away from her book to answer my question, I didn't bother her again. The displays are nicely restored and descriptions are informative.

The museum was very neat and I learned a lot. The historic site was smaller than I thought it would be, but still interesting. The gift shop had a lot of really neat books.

Very interesting place to visit with lots of information on the history of Casper. We ended our day with a BBQ in the park just outside.

Ft. Caspar is a good place to see firsthand how the Ft. helped travelers in the mid-1800's. This isn't the original fort but it was rebuilt in the 1930's. Great stop.

Fort Casper is an actuall U.S. Calvary fort and trading post. The exhibits a very well done and the forts buildings are the original log buildings with some upgrades and preservation. It is situated at the trails river crossing. The original bridge has also been preserved.
