“Really Good”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The musuem was interesting and informative. The scene of the courtroom, jail cell, and commissary were very good. The walking trails were also enjoyable.

“America's past comes alive”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

This is a great place to stop and remember our history and the impact do the Osage and Cherokee tribes. It is easy to find. MIT is right across from Oklahoma.

“Nicely maintained historic site”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stopped in for about two hours on a recent road trip and thought this was a very nice historic site. The exhibits tell the history of Fort Smith: the Trail of Tears, its jail and gallows, and its role in the Civil War. The buildings are well maintained and the exhibits are informative. It is geared more toward adults and teenagers. There is not much for younger kids.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Very good place to visit and well worth the time. Tells the history of the area and surrounding places. Ecellent displays. I can see that much time and effort went into the preserving of historical artifacts and the old Fort Smith site.
