  • Take time to see & enjoy everything this area has to offer! Historical recreation of the Original Old Fort Madison. This area is extremely historic from the Old Time Mississippi River and Old Steam...

  • We had a great guided tour of the Fort which included a firing of the guns. These included a small howitzer and a six pound cannonball gun. Also gigantic shot guns for short range. A lot of fire...

  • Fantastic place to visit if you’re staying in the area or driving through. The actors there are super knowledgeable and very kind. We asked tons of questions and they answered each one with facts and enthusiasm. Definitely ask them to fire the musket as well! So cool! We went first thing when they opened and enjoyed the whole fort to ourselves. Took about 1 hour to see the whole fort and sit through the presentations.
  • Great piece of American history. The staff are very knowledgeable and very good at presenting the history of the Fort.
