We make history come alive.


Welcome to the Fort Museum & Frontier Village. We are a privately owned non-profit museum showcasing the Fort Dodge, Iowa area's frontier roots in our amazing replica 19th century fort. With a collection of thousands of artifacts ranging from military memorabilia to Native American art and tools, there's so much here to discover.
