Military Museum Historic Site
At Fort Ticonderoga, discover the history of the Seven Years War and the American Revolution. Built between 1855 and 1857, the fort's construction on Lake Champlain was a strategic coup by the French against British forces during the American Revolution. Housed in the old soldiers' barracks, the museum exhibits weapons used in battles during this era and provides information about health and injury on the battlefield. You'll also learn about food within the fort in the 1700s. You can witness reconstructions of battles here, complete with costumes and cannon-fire. Also visit the fort's extensive formal gardens, which were created in 1921 and are filled with colorful old-fashioned and modern flowers set against a backdrop of red brick walls.

  • Beautiful area. The Fort is very well restored and well staff with people dressed in character for time period. My young children loved the reenactments.
  • If you enjoy history at all, come here. Fantastic star for in great condition. Be aware of the hours. We had to rush more than I wanted because they closed around 5.
  • We visited Fort Ticonderoga with our three teens during the Summer and they really enjoyed the guided tour, the scenery, and the history lessons. Even with my children being raised in a technological generation, they never took out their devices to play due to being bored. They really enjoyed learning and visiting and sharing the photos afterwards with friends and family. We loved the re-enactments, the guided history lessons, the cooking and sewing demonstrations, and the amazing scenery! I would highly recommend visiting Fort Ticonderoga with the whole family for a great history lesson.
  • Last summer my grandchildren and I went to visit this amazing fort. My grandchildren loved their visit. They took their time and stopped at every exhibit. They really enjoyed the shoemaker , the tailor and seeing and getting to participate in shooting a real cannon. This was the highlight of my grandson's visit. My grandchildren also loved the corn maze. It was a fun afternoon and educational too. We will certainly go again.
  • Really enjoyed the fort and the day. Loved the living historians. The gardens leave alot to be desired.
