About us
The Friends of the Frontier Army Museum (FFAM) invite you to explore our website to learn about our membership events, fundraisers and the educational activities we offer. Participation in The Friends is open to everyone. Come and see for yourself all that The Friends have to offer. 

Who we are

We are spouses. We are retirees. We are Service members. We are Friends. Together we make up FFAM. The Friends is best described as "fun with a purpose".  Each year our members put on fun, interactive events to help raise money and awareness for the Frontier Army Museum. 

What we do

The Friends raise money for the conservation, restoration and purchase of artifacts. The Friends promote an interest in the living history here at Fort Leavenworth and cultivate curiosity in the Frontier Army to our youngest generation. The Friends organize events for children like Movie Matinees. We also offer adults a variety of Membership events providing informative guest speakers, private behind the scenes tours and other opportunities to learn more about Fort Leavenworth, the oldest active Army Post west of the Mississippi River.
