Fort Ticonderoga

Fort Ticonderoga

Exhibits at the fort depict the natural and strategic geography of the historic landscape of the Ticonderoga peninsula during both the French & Indian and Revolutionary Wars.

Fort Ticonderoga is one of the nation's oldest museums and boasts world class collections – including the largest cannon collection in North America. Museum exhibits at Fort Ticonderoga are displayed in the restored Enlisted Mens' and Officers' Barracks buildings and, beginning in 2008, in the newly restored magasin du Roi or King's Warehouse.
