There really isn't much to review on this. Its a great little spot in the middle of town. If you are really into historic sites then stop by here!

It's free admission and interesting history. There is a volunteer who seems to know a lot the area and is very friendly and helpful with answering your questions.

This site has been self-guided every time I have visited. It has an old steam locomotive, a carpenter-Gothic-style church that has been moved in, and the old weather bureau building, which I believe was a former officer's quarters at the fort. The church is still used for weddings.

The premises house several historical buildings from different eras in the town's history, and it is a free historical attraction in Bismarck. Park nearby, come here and read the info plaques, and go have a cup of coffee at a nearby downtown cafe.

The most fascinating aspect of this site is the outside map showing all of the buildings that no longer sit on the site. The site could certainly benefit from additional effort to explain these buildings and their purposes, perhaps through a short trail across the grounds with explanatory placards. The remaining buildings are interesting, particularly the church, but that does not raise it above average as a site to visit, particularly if you have children in tow.
