“supporting our troops history”

Originally called Camp Center, Ft. Riley was established in the 1850s to provide protection to immigrants migrating westward on the Oregon and Sante Fe Trails. Its cavalry units policed the Kansas Territory during the pro and anti-slavery bloodshed that preceded the Civil War and it was the last home of General George Armstrong Custer before he met his fate at the battle of the Little Big Horn. The museum includes exhibits of cavalry activities from their early beginnings in the Revolutionary War up to their modern deployment in the Persian Gulf. It also features the work of outstanding military artists in both oil and bronze.

The museum is on a military base...so get your ID ready and tell the front guards that you're visiting the museum. It's a very cool place, and worth the effort to see it.

The base is a beautiful mix between "preserved past history" and functioning base. Feels almost more like an Ivy League campus around the Museums and Parade Grounds.
I highly recommend seeing the museums, parade grounds, sculptures, tanks, and 7th Calvary Memorial.
