Where are we going today?

A National Historic Landmark and Utah Military History Center. Welcome to what was once one of the most essential forts in the United States. It served to protect the mail routes and settlers of the Wild West against Indian attacks as well as providing a home for troops who fought in Mexico, the Philippines, the trenches of Europe, and the islands of the Pacific. The Fort was also used to house prisoners of war during World War I and II. It even became an Air Base! All aspects of the Fort's use brought honor and pride to our nation. Exhibits cover the history of Fort Douglas and Utah Military History. Outdoor exhibits include, artillery, tanks, vehicles and helicopters.
