The Frontier Army Museum at Fort Leavenworth

The Frontier Army Museum at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, exhibits artifacts from Frontier Army soldiers who served west of the Mississippi River from 1804 through 1917. The collection at the museum began in 1939, when the wagon shop closed and the horse-drawn vehicles were relocated to what was initially called the "Old Rolling Wheels Museum". The Museum was officially recognized as an Army Museum in 1960, and its collection of nineteenth century military artifacts is considered to be one of the finest in the country.
