The fort buildings at Fort Caspar Museum are now open for the summer season.  In May, the Museum is open daily from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm daily June through August.
The Fort is a reconstructed 1865 military post located at a major river crossing on the Oregon, Mormon, California, Pony Express, and transcontinental telegraph trail corridor. The current fort buildings were part of a joint reconstruction project between the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the City of Casper in 1936. They were rebuilt close to their original locations using a floor plan drawn by the Fort’s namesake, Lieutenant Caspar Collins, who died here in an Indian battle in 1865.

Admission to Fort Caspar Museum is $3.00 for adults; $2.00 for youth (ages 13-18 years); and FREE for children (12 years and younger).  For information call 307-235-8462 or visit their website at www.fortcasparwyoming.com.  Fort Caspar Museum is located at 4001 Fort Caspar Road.
