Beautiful Installation. Museum & Monuments were worth the trip. The Staff on site were very helpful, great to interact with. Very Nice people. Visitor Center made it very easy to get a day pass to see the sites.

This post is one of the first west of the Missouri River and very historic with great grounds and old buildings. There is a nice museum to visit and just driving the grounds is enjoyable

Buffalo Soldier Monument is a must see. There are places to stop and read history of Fort Leavenworth. I worked on Fort Leavenworth for 34 plus years.

Remember to have i.d. Ready! I'm from Minnesota so needed a passport card per website info. It was a nice drive along the river where beautiful homes overlook it. This is a large army base with loads of walking trails, buffalo park and national cemetery.
