  • Okay I gave this one a generous rating because it's free. It's a nice way to spend a few hours when you're at Lake George. We had a very nice time walking around the fort, watching movies and looking at the exhibits. For some reason it feels nostalgic for a time I didn't live in...
  • Great chance to learn about some of the early history of our country. I've always loved the "living history" model, and Fort William Henry does a great job. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable, taking the time to explain everything thoroughly and answer an y and all questions. They've also got a great interactive piece for kids to "enlist" in the local militia, put on a uniform and "fire" muskets with museum guides. Sadly, like so many historic sites, not enough people are willing to spend the time visiting. While the rest of downtown Lake George is full of cheesey tourist trap shops selling cheap crap, a rare and vital piece of our nation's history sits ignored by too many people more interested in parasailing and roller coasters at nearby Six Flags.
  • Great tour guides and a museum that's working hard to be more than a tourist trap. The uniforms are authentic and the displays are interesting. I clip a star for the gift shop, which is fully tourist trapped. Stay clear of it and you'll have a great time.
  • The Fort has an interring history and it is perfectly shown by the museum. The tour is interesting and the free parking is convent. I defiantly recommend looking in the gift shop.
  • Great museum for kids and adults. Friendly staff and informative demonstrations although it's hard to hear the history presentation and it gets a bit stuffy for kids. Otherwise it's a fun time especially with the military drill the kids can participate in - it was the highlight for them!!
