About Us

The Fort Museum and Fort Trading Post is the first and finest attraction in highlighting the past and present history of Northwest Iowa. The Fort Museum is truly one of the finest locations to document the development of the Des Moines River basin, and the Fort Dodge, Iowa area. The Fort Museum is also the home of the Original "Cardiff Giant". The Gypsum material to carve the statue was quarried in the Fort Dodge area quarries.

We Hope you enjoy this look into the Fort Museum activities, and will stop by and visit the facility. We have also provided links to many other attractions in the North Central Iowa area.
