Field Trips

Homeschool groups and traditional school groups find a visit to Fort Morgan State Historic Site to be an enriching experience for their students. With history that encompasses the colonial periods through World War II, we are sure we can provide you with a visit that fits your curricula.

All school groups need to register in advance using the group registration form. To ensure that your desired tour date is available, please email your registration form located above, as early as possible.


Adult Groups

Continuing education programs and civic groups often use Fort Morgan as a destination. Your group may choose a guided tour conducted by one of our knowledgeable staff, or you may wish to set your own pace by using a self guided tour. Whatever the choice, Fort Morgan will provide a day outing worth remembering!

Military Groups

  As a retired military installation, Fort Morgan State Historic Site is proud of its military heritage and works with active military organizations such as the United States Army and Navy on a regular basis. Visits often involve a more in depth discussion of military defensive techniques and strategies than are usually presented to other groups.
