Enjoyed walking around this historic site, there was piped music and a bit of narrative and you could almost see the soldiers standing in line on the parade ground. If you are into Cowboy western films then this one is for you.

Nice display inside the visitor center, We enjoyed learning what the fort was all about. Most of the original fort is gone, but now reproduced for all to see. I think it was worth it.
