Since we were travelling off-season and all of the seasonal living history employees were now gone, the place was deserted except for a single Ranger. He was friendly and informative and we enjoyed speaking to him. The exhibits were pretty good in the visitor center,...More

The staff is very informative and friendly and make for a pleasant experience. We always stop here while in Ft Davis. The museum has just gone through an expansive renovation which is hands on and great for all ages.

This fort is one of the best out there to see. Great example of early Indian Fort. Highly recommend stopping and seeing it. They continue to improve it. They have a golf cart available for handicapped.

This site was very well preserved and I could tell that the people who were taking care of it were in the process of trying to make it even better. I went in the morning since Texas is hot and you have to walk around...More

A real time trip back into history in a beautiful setting. A knowledgeable and friendly ranger gave us an overview, then we took off on our own to explore the museum area, and then the buildings, some of which are beautifully and accurately time appropriately...More
