Small but good. You can walk through the whole thing in about 1.5 hours. Great information about the history of Casper and how it has thrived and survived. The forts out back were pretty cool.

Great little museum. Caspar Collins Days have reenactments of military formations on horses, and interesting talks.

After visiting the National Historic Trail Centre and our Wagon ride we visited this Site. We found it very informative and interesting to see how the early soldiers lived.

The folks at Fort Caspar Museum and Historic Site know their "stuff." It's a great place for kids because, in addition to the museum, there is an opportunity to let off some steam outdoors.

After visiting the Historic trails interpretive center this was a bit of a let down. It is a very nice museum and fort but not unlike many we have visited before. The walk through the fort to the river was very nice.

Had a day off from our travels an decided to pop in and have a look around. The museum is not very large but was quite informative. Takes about an hour to go though and worth a visit.

We arrived as it opened and a guide took us with him as he unlocked the buildings. Very informative . The buildings are furnished as they would have been during. Very interesting facts about a time a little later than emigration. .Telegraph coming. W I rth the visit and very friendly people in the museum

This is a great place to learn about frontier army life. The fort buildings and their furnishings help you really picture what it might have been like to be in a frontier fort in the 1800s. The little museum inside provides a nice respite from the heat and had good exhibits on the history of central Wyoming. My elementary school-aged... More

This is an interesting little museum. I enjoyed the fort and its furnishings from the time period. It isn't a large time consuming display, but is affordable. It would bea good place to take children as they can run around outside from building to building and travel back in time by seeing how people lived back in " the day".
