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.

  • This fort is great for history lovers. The reenactments here are great, and all the historical actors are very knowledgeable about the period. There is a museum here too.

  • While it was a cold day, the views, especially of the autum colors were spectacular. Learned stuff I didn't know about the history of the area.

  • Love this place! I have found memories as a child coming here and it was an even greater joy to bring my own children. Such a lovely and historic place ❤️
  • Hands down, the best fort in North America. Fort Necessity is just sticks in a field, The Alamo is no longer anything near a fort, and all the rest look pretty much the same. But Fort Ticonderoga is different. It is not made out of wood. The view is just magnificent standing on the top.
