About

Located in a faithful reproduction of the 1880s’ adobe officer quarters, the Fort Lowell Museum features exhibits and activities chronicling army life during the Apache wars.

Located on the original parade grounds, and surrounded by many of the original structures associated with the fort, the museum is a great place to begin a walking tour Fort Lowell public park that includes Hohokam Indian sites, a historic neighborhood, picnic facilities, and playground.

The Fort Lowell park actually is the site of what used to be Fort Lowell. Part of the medical wing of the fort still stands, as well as the trees planted to mark the road to the fort. A small museum is located at the park and it contains exhibits related to the fort history and military history in Tucson in general. Uniforms and photographs of military life show viewers what life used to be like at Fort Lowell.
