This is a wonderful little museum with s big story to tell. What went on in the Champlain Valley that was so decisive to the successful end of the revolutionary war ? One of the best museums for and of the battles on the lake that delayed the British enough to turn the tides for the colonies. The unsuccessful invasion of Canada and another view of Benedict Arnold are presented as well. Also: Boating history of the lake from early native canoes, thru colonial time to more modern transportation. And: Resources and more in an extensive bookstore.
We go to the Museum once a year while we are at the Basin Harbor Club. The gift shop is great for books about the lake, Crafts and local history.
