Plan a Visit

Overlooking the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, Fort Snelling was once the furthest outpost of the U.S. military. Today, guests can learn about the lives of the people who lived in and around the fort in the early 1800s, as well as the important role the site has played in Minnesota history. Stop in the Visitors Center to watch a short orientation film, Where the Waters Meet: Stories of Fort Snelling, and then take a short walk to the restored historic fort and step back in time to the early 1800s. Costumed staff share the fort's history through conversation, demonstrations and lots of interactive activities.

Take an interactive map tour of the historic fort.
