Fort Ticonderoga’s youngest visitors make crafts and roll-up their sleeves in fun hands-on activities while learning about Fort Ticonderoga! Help soldiers with their daily duties, make a historic hat, and discover the science and math behind maritime trades. Be sure to get the scoop on all the family activities across the 2000-acre historic landscape and in our museum during one of our family tours!
In His Majesty's Service: An Adventure for the Whole Family!
Explore the historic trades shops, the gardens, and the maritime warehouse near the King’s Garden to help with daily duties. Complete tasks and you’ll win different prizes! The program is available in July and August.
How Heavy is a Cannon?
Try your hand at lifting a real cannon in the artillery laboratory or see if you have the right aim for a eagle-eyed artilleryman as you play artillery pin ball! Don’t forget to try on the kid-size artilleryman uniforms while in the laboratory.
Meet Our Friendly Animals
Be sure to say hello to our dynamic oxen duo Mick and Mack. You can find them walking around the fort hauling wood or sometimes in the King’s Garden at the barn. Learn how these oxen helped support the soldiers at Ticonderoga and work with us today to haul heavy supplies. They love to see kids and enjoy a friendly pat on their noses!
