Seventy-Five years of military history!
From Crazy Horse to the cavalry to the K-9 Corps, Fort Robinson played host to them all. Experience the long and varied history of this outpost on the Plains. The museum at Fort Robinson is located in the 1905 post headquarters building. Exhibits trace the history from the post's role guarding the Red Cloud Agency (1874-77) through the housing of World War II German POW's (1943-46). Among the many fascinating objects you will see in the museum's exhibits are the only known dog kennel from the K-9 Corps of World War II, marksmanship medals earned by Caleb Benson, a Buffalo Soldier at Fort Robinson between 1902 and 1909, and nineteenth-century Sioux objects related to the Red Cloud Agency.
To learn more about Fort Robinson's history, you can visit more than a dozen historic structures and sites such as the 1904 blacksmith shop, the 1908 veterinary hospital, the 1887 officers' quarters, the 1875 guardhouse and adjutant's office, and the old post cemetery. A library featuring materials on Fort Robinson, military, and western history is available to researchers for inhouse use. A self-guided tour book and many books on military and western history are available for purchase.
