Fort Snelling

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.
