Find out that there is more to history than meets the eye at Historic Fort Snelling! 
The Army was the home of scientists and engineers as well as soldiers.  Along with soldiering, learn how the Army worked, how it kept time, coped with the weather, fed itself, stayed healthy, and maintained equipment.  Kids can delve beneath the surface to investigate the reasons things are the way they are, how they came to be, and the effects they have on us today.  

Space is limited so be sure to make your reservations! Pre-registration and prepayment are required.
