Fort Ticonderoga Offers:





Fort Ticonderoga, just minutes from Lake George, has things for the whole family to do!  We offer a variety of exciting daily programs enabling you and your family to become intimately acquainted with the Fort's rich history. Let Fort Ticonderoga's interpretive staff take you back in time and show you what life was like at this remote military post on Lake Champlain. Each year Fort Ticonderoga peels back the layers of its rich history to look at specific year. This year dive into 1776 and discover why it’s way more than just the 4th of July! Portraying soldiers of the Fourth Pennsylvania Battalion, the Fort Ticonderoga staff will bring to life the trials and triumphs of these men and the epic story of 1776.


Fort Ticonderoga has been collecting, preserving, and exhibiting art, artifacts, and archives for over a century.  Its collections are regarded as the most important of their type in America.  Artifact-rich exhibitions occupy more than 10,000 square feet of space in the restored 1756 soldiers' barracks building and special exhibition gallery in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center.
