Was treated to a guided tour of the armory by a Navy vet who explained the use of cannons in battle very well. The fort has multiple buildings that demonstrate how the soldiers and officers lived. Took About 1.5 hours to listen to the presentation and view the complex.

There are a large number of restored buildings and a lot to see. There are also a number of special events throughout the year that highlight the history of the fort.

We attended the Christmas at the Fort. Very fun, good vendors and many nice docents. Learned history and local activities to do later in the week.

We were visiting relatives, we went on a rainy day, the people in the office were very nice. We had a baby in a stroller, able to walk through the buildings with ease. If you are a history buff this is unique. Never saw such an organized group of buildings. Worth the visit.

Excellent place to visit to see how the army lived in the old days. There is a big "festival" in December...enactment of army life at the Fort. People visit from many places.

We had read about Fort Concho, and decided to go out of our way to visit. The office area and intro. film were good. We walked around and into all the building which were open. We visited overall for about an hour. I wish there had been an option for an audio tour -- just a suggestion!

Although we attended this location during Fort Concho Christmas and it was raining and cold at time; this is an attraction not to be missed. The fort has been restored to most of its original standing. There are plans to improve and redo destroyed buildings also. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful beyond what you expect at a historic... More

Lived in San Angelo for nearly 30 years (been gone now for a year), but this is one of the places we would always take visitors. Many of the Buffalo Soldiers called this place home. At one time Robert E. Lee was commanding officer. The telephone museum located in an "officer row home" is intriguing. They have various programs during... More
