We spent a few hours at the Fort Laramie site, including with a guided tour. The place has an intersting history, and some rooms had nicely arranged authentic furniture and decorations, but not spectacular.

Plenty of open spaces here at Fort Laramie. Interesting to see how this place operated back then. Wished signage was a bit better to / from and within.

Grounds were clean and the buildings well preserved. Interesting historiical information concerning the purpose of the remote fort, some of the Indian culture surrounding the park and several guides to explain the history. The 13 year old liked it a lot, the 10 year old was bored.

We arrived at Fort Laramie about 10 minutes before closing. The Ranger in the Visitor's Center (located in one of the historic buildings located a short walk from the parking lot), kindly stayed 15 minutes after closing to chat with me about the history of the fort. You can walk around the site and look at the buildings and displays... More

Fort Laramie was a major stop on the way west for tens of thousands of settlers. The problem is that it has a perception issue because it does not look nor did it ever look like the Hollywood version of a western fort with high walls and a large gate with cavalry troops riding out of the gates to fight...

Fort Laramie is a well preserved historical site, which played a pivotal part in the westward expansion of the United States. Make sure to tour all of the buildings and to catch any of the period talks!

You could almost envision the day to day operations of the Fort after touring many of the buildings. Very interesting to see the furnishings and ambiance. Well done.
