When I was a child, my dad would take us to Fort Snelling. I personally hated it. As a girl, I was more interested in Barbies and animals, not war and weapons. But now, as an adult, I have a new appreciation for historical sites, and the sacrifice that men and women over the years have made to ensure our freedoms.
So on Memorial Day weekend, I went to visit Fort Snelling. Museums, in general, are more family friendly than they used to be when I was a child. They are more hands on and relateable to our everyday lives.
You can go to the Fort Snelling website to find out more. Here I have included some pictures I took.
