Great History

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

We have been to Ft. Concho several times over the years and leave with more knowledge and have a fun experience . It is also a great place for a school program, a reunion, wedding or a special luncheon. This summer we had the privilege to help serve lunch for the Kids Eat Free program in Officers Quarters #8.

This is a fun place to visit and learn about the 19th century buffalo soldiers and military of those days. Great care has been taken to restore the buildings to as close their original state. It is a large complex and be prepared to walk if you want a good visit and taken in some history. And you get to... More

Respecting the history of Fort Concho including the heroic Buffalo Soldiers - love it! My mom grew up across the street from the museum. We played in the attics there. I hope it is well supported.

The Fort was very interesting and our tour guide was excellent. It was a very hot day but he took us around the Fort on a 1-1 1/2 hour journey and he was full of anecdotes and local stories. Well worth a visit- especially if you have an interest in the Buffalo Soldiers.
