This is definitely worth a visit if you are in San Angelo. Staff is friendly and helpful. If you are a history buff you will really enjoy it. Their Christmas at the Fort is worth the trip as well. Have vendors and also have old time baseball game in old uniforms and old time bands. Good family event.

Not a typical fort with log poles, but an historical fort with buildings surrounding a parade field. I found the small museum to be filled with rifles, guns, and artifacts from the fort's era. The rifles and cannons/Gatling gun, seen in another building, were worth the visit. A small gift area is at the entrance.

One of the largest and well maintained Forts in the state. The phone museum was a special surprise. Take your time and really go back in time to see how it really was living on $13.00 a month!

Excellent well preserved fort right in the heart of San Angelo. The staff and volunteers provide excellent background on the fort and the restoration efforts. Make sure to visit the phone museum housed in one of the old fort buildings. One of the highlights of the trip and totally unexpected.

Learned a lot about the forts in the area and what they were used for. The people that were there had a lot of information that they were happy to share.

This museum features a very good preserved history of the Buffalo soldier's plight in the west and struggle against the oppression of the people they protected and the ones they fought against. I would love to return for another tour.

Ft. Concho is one of my favorite places of San Angelo. The history, the buildings and tours are fantastic. It truly makes you feel like you're stepping back in time. My favorite part of Ft. Concho is Christmas at Ft. Concho. It is a 3 day event, usually held the 1st weekend in December. There are reenactments being done in... More

Very cool. Kids 6 and under are free. Our kids are young, so we decided on the self guided tour. (The guided is geared more for older kids and adults or someone who doesn't really want to hear every detail) We paid 7.50 for a family of 4. Great price and we all enjoyed it. Only 2 of the buildings... More

I didn't find enough interest via the printed media, or on the drive through, to peruse the premises. The temperatures this particular day were around 105 and we chose to drive through and view the fort from the auto.

It was 101 degrees outside, so his wasn't our best choice of things to do. Fort Concho is an excellent choice for the historian in the family, especially if you like the OLD WEST. They have some historic barracks and officer housing open for viewing, and decorated in period artifacts to give visitors an idea of the sparse lifestyle on... More
