If you've been to some of the other museums in Salt Lake City like the Pioneer Memorial Museum, then this military museum will seem rather small: you'll be able to get round it in less than 90 minutes. But actually that wasn't such a bad...More

I think this is a great museum that showcases Utah's involvement in the military. This specializes in the history of Ft Douglas. This museum is free of charges but does accept donations to keep it going. We enjoyed the educational information inside and outside in...More

We got to the museum as a field trip was there. Lots and lots of kids. However that did not take away from our visit. The place has plans to expand in the future. A nice museum at a great price.

The museum was housed in a renovated building and was nicely layout over several rooms. The displays are well maintained and clearly labeled. There is also an outdoor area where some field guns, helicopters and vehicles/tanks are on display. However, we struggled to occupy ourselves...More

The relationship of the early Mormon settlers and the Federal Government was difficult and the military had a significant role. This museum covers this and also covers subsequent military roles that Utah citizen soldiers themselves played in U.S. history. There are some interesting artifacts from...More

You can also stay right next to Fort Douglas at the University Guest House. I have stayed there once and it's a great small hotel.

The exact date is to be determined but we are planning for everything to be complete by June 20, 2015 (Fort Douglas Day). We are open during the renovations, giving a peak into how a museum comes together.
