Guests enjoy breathtaking views of the reconstructed historic site overlooking the Missouri River as they learn about the daily life of military, civilian and Native American populations at Fort Osage. Also explore 4,000 square feet of museum exhibitions in the Fort Osage Education Center and a museum store with unique gifts and souvenirs.
