My mother and I visited this park on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We were able to roam the grave markers of the original settlers of Kentucky prior to entering the park. Admission to the Fort is $5. This fee also includes access to the museum.
The fort is a replica of the original Fort Harrod, which stood on a nearby hill. Although not exact, the fort provides a realistic look at how life was arranged within the fort. You can tour the fort at your own pace and are provided with written information regarding each structure. Typically, staff would be available at each facility to demonstrate how life would have been in each section of the fort. We believe that we visited during a lunch break, as we found most of the areas vacant.
Near the front gate is a cabin that is enclosed in a church-like brick structure. This is said to be the cabin that Abraham Lincoln's parents, Thomas and Nancy, were married in. A great deal of detailed information is available.
On the opposite corner stands a museum. Tons of things are available on display. Many great artifacts of the revolution and civil war.
We spent nearly one hour at the fort and one hour at the museum. An additional 20 minutes was spent in the graveyard, the monument and the cabin.
