The U. S. Cavalry Museum is located in Fort Riley's historic main post district. Originally constructed in 1855 for use as a hospital, the building was remodeled and became headquarters to the Cavalry and Light Artillery School in 1890. In 1957, the building was designated as home for the Cavalry Museum. Visitors may enjoy exhibit galleries that take them on a historic tour of the cavalry's material culture - from the Revolutionary War through the branches inactivation in 1950. A temporary gallery also chronicles special phases in the history of this colorful post. The museum includes an art collection with works by Fredric Remington and contemparary artists Don Stivers and Don Troiani.
