“Not Much To See There”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The Museum building is located where Ft. Klamath used to be. Nothing, other than 5 Native Indians graves, and small log cabin are left on the grounds. Inside the museum, you can learn about the Modoc War and view few authentic civil and military memorabilia. If you are in a hurry - skip this place. If you have an hour - go and visit.

“Small but very interesting”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Heidi at the Aspen Inn Motel recommended my sister and I check out this museum if we had time after hiking around Crater Lake. We're sure glad we did! Kevin Fields, historian, gave us a fascinating look back at Ft. Klamath which was built to protect settlers from Native Americans. Learned a lot from this one room museum about the fort, the Modoc Indian wars and Captain Jack. The museum sits on the grounds of the original fort, none of which is standing. Perhaps one day it will be excavated?

“Fort Klamath Museum”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Excellent displays for historical items. The gentleman working that day was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Fort and his explanations of events were great...tinged with humor.

“How interesting”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is a really interesting spot, almost in the middle of nowhere. What a great day trip from Medford or Klamath Falls! We stopped here, went to the fish hatchery, had an ice cream at the little store...it is a great spot to easily teach the kiddo some history!
