Like many Heritage places the staff are in period dress in the shops and buildings on display. The added touch comes with the cast of characters doing reenactments in the streets of the town. A mix of restored and buildings left to decay with dignity...More

We loved Fort Steele. Make sure you give yourself lots of time to go through it though. We spent better part of 3 hours there and felt like we had to rush to see everything before they closed up. The displays are fantastic, there's even...More

Fort Steele Heritage town is a really neat place to visit. It's free entry but they ask for a donation if you can afford it. It's like every western you've ever seen where the cowboy rides into a deserted town. Some original buildings but most...More

There are wooden boardwalks that are ramped for access to the buildings as well as a ramp up to the train. In places where there are no boardwalks the roads are very well maintained. Shouldn't be a problem.
