Spent several hours here on our trip across Missouri. Very good historical reproductions and a good stuff who were eager to educate. Set on the banks of the Missouri River, a beautiful location, and worth the stop.

This is a reconstruction of the first US fort in the Louisiana Purchase territory. It is a good place for kids to stretch and explore. Grandparents might just think they stepped into Boonesboro as shown on the TV show Daniel Boone. Artifacts in the shop take you there. Smithy made implements impressive and accurate. The quality of your experience will... More

We spent an extra day in KC. Had to have work done on our motorhome. So while the coach was in the shop, we took the time to visit the Fort. So glad that we did. It was very interesting. But the staff was so helpful and went above and beyond for us. We were the only visitors so it... More

This place is worth a stop. The first thing you do when you visit this Fort is tour the museum. Its very good. Has the history what happened here. You must do this first to better understand what the Fort was all about. Then you tour the Fort. It sets by the Missouri river. Does not take to long to... More

Both the lady in the store and the gentleman providing living history interpretive information were very good. The the fort was interesting and the museum filled with local historical information. The fort was built by William Clark which is why it is on the Lewis and Clark Trail byway. Worth the trip.

We visited on an "in-service" day so the grandkids were out of school. Took a picnic lunch. The fort is well preservedand the docents are very friendly as well as knowledgeable. Made the kids the center of attention. The museum is great as well. Lots of interesting exhibits but it held the adults attention better than the kids...the kids rushed... More

This is a wonderful place for children to learn about how the Mo river was so important for the state of Mo. They learn about the explorers and Indians and see what is left of the Fort. Good family adventure and very cheap.

I didn't know Fort Osage existed until the end of a recent business trip to Kansas City, when the concierge at my hotel told me about it. It's a little bit of a drive from Kansas City, but it's worth it. I only wish the weather hadn't turned for the worst with heavy rain as my visit to Fort Osage... More

A visit to Fort Osage is a great day trip. It's not large, but there's a good deal of information available, both at the fort and the small museum.
