Unfortunately at the time when we visited the museum was in the process of being moved into a recently renovated adjacent building. Whilst what we saw was interesting, it was a pity that so much had been packed up ready for the move. We'd like to see it again once the move is completed.

this is a very small museum located on the grounds of Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City. It is worth a quick peak. It is staffed by very knowledgeable volunteer docents. Very interesting insights into early Utah history. SEE IT!

For a volunteer-run, no-fee museum with free parking, it's great! They don't have a lot of stuff, but if you're familiar with Utah military history, you'll probably appreciate it most.

I have been fortunate to visit many Military Museums around the western world. This is worth the time, I have been many times and will continue to enjoy the history here.. The Fort Douglas area is storied in history from the State, and the nation. --DO YOUR HOMEWORK-- KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!!

Small museums always have space and money issues to deal with but the Ft. Douglas museum never fails to do the most with the space they have and the money they get!! Fun for the big kids in every family.
