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.

This military museum has indoor exhibits, as well as outdoor equipment/machinery that you can view. Free parking is available on the street directly in front of the museum.

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!!

The Fort Douglas Military Museum is located on the campus of the University of Utah. It is small, but still provides a lot of information about Utah and its military history. It is not hard to find, as there are vehicles and aircraft outside as you drive up to it. The museum itself is free but donations are accepted. As... More

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.

What a great way to spend a couple of hours with family or friends who have a military interest of the Salt Lake Valley. Photos relics all from the distant past. A quiet helpful atmosphere. Usually only a few people there and sometimes no one so you can take everything in without interruptions and talk about the history without bothering... More
