Great place to take a walk through a historic location. Self guided tour allows you to go at your own pace. Excellent period exhibits. Staff friendly & helpful.

It's amazing that more recognition is not paid to this hidden gem. If you like history, historical architecture, or just a really good story, this is your place. You will find it hard to find a more complete historical setting than this.

Fort Concho is extremely well maintained and an excellent historical site to research Texas fort history. The docents (guides) are very knowledgeable and insightful concerning the relevant historical knowledge. There are either accompanied tours or "guided" tours.
