Fort Douglas Military Museum Tours

What once opened as Camp Douglas, a small military outpost during the Civil War, has morphed over time into an impressive military museum. Now known as Fort Douglas, the museum is best known for its several military vehicles on display. The original barracks also remain in tact for exploring, bringing history to life. Other notable sights include exhibits on Utah and western U.S. history, and a cemetery dating back to 1863. Original 19th century stone buildings include a post office, chapel, stables, headquarters, and officers’ quarters.

Visitors won’t want to miss the outdoor collection of historic tanks and cannons, intermixed with more recent helicopters and armored vehicles. Inside, wartime artifacts, weapons, and uniforms are on display, showcasing Utah’s role in many of the American wars. Fort Douglas has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, and a small portion of the original fort is still in use by the United States military.

Practical Info

The military museum at Fort Douglas is located beside the University of Utah campus overlooking Salt Lake City. Open Tuesday to Saturday from noon to 5 pm, parking and admission are free.
