If you're looking for something cheap and fun to do with the entire family, Fort Caspar Museum has you covered. This Saturday, they will host a "Fremont Family Funday", which entails the making of 'Merci Train Boxcars'

After World War II, France sent “The Merci Train,” 49 boxcars filled with gifts to the United States. These colorful boxcars evoke the generosity of a time gone by.

Admission prices are $1.50 for adults; $1.00 for youth (ages 13-18 years); FREE for children (12 years and younger) and for Museum members.
