We visited the Fort and Museum with low expectations based on a couple of reviews here, but were pleasantly surprised with the fort, it's layout and attention to detail. I suppose if you were a local it might not impress, but being "from away" and just having seen the Lewis and Clark fort in Oregon I think this is a great replica. The physical condition of the exterior and interior is excellent. The exhibits within each area: blacksmith, meat room, trading room, officer's area are all well done and feature items within each room that match the era. Outside the fort are buffalo and elk. Then across the field is the replica of the old town with school, church, saloon, and other buildings...all in great shape. Then, to complete the package, is the Museum which features a wonderful history of the area. $4 did not ruin my budget for all of this terrific history. Bring the kids to see the covered wagons and the fire engine and let them see how people lived back in the day.This is a class attraction, but take the time to READ as you go; otherwise you may feel disappointed.
