Fort Caspar is Open with Some Precautions
in Place for Health and Safety.

  NOTE: the use of masks or face coverings are required for entry beginning Nov. 19, 2020.

Following CDC, state, and local health and safety guidelines, we will have restrictions in place to protect our visitors and staff.  There will also be some modifications to our operating hours:  from 9:00 am to 10:00 am, we will allow admission to high-risk visitors only.  Masks or face coverings are required for entry beginning November 19, 2020.

All on-site programs and tours are cancelled, but we will continue to offer monthly history programs online for kids and families.  This virtual opportunity is a collaboration between Fort Caspar Museum and the National Historic Trails Center.  Hands-on History Club is accessed by a code generated after you make a reservation; please see our website or call for more information.

Preventative procedures in the museum include a thorough cleaning each morning; high-touch surfaces and restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.  Staff will be wearing face coverings, and we require visitors to wear them as well.  Sanitation stations will be available so that visitors may use sanitizer as they enter and leave the facility.  Even so, we ask that you refrain from touching displays and other surfaces during your visit.  Directional signs will encourage a one-way flow through the galleries, and we ask that six-feet of distance be maintained between people who are not traveling together.

Group sizes are limited to 25 people.  Groups of any size should explore the museum together and stay six feet away from other visitors.  Children must remain with their family group.  We are still accepting indoor and outdoor facility rentals at this time as long as they comply with current guidelines.

Of course, if you are experiencing any symptoms that are typical signs of a Covid-19 infection—such as a cough, high temperature, body aches, chills, sore throat, breathing difficulty, and/or loss of taste or smell—please stay home.
