I absolutely enjoyed going there as a kid and recently went back with a 12 yr old. A little bit of everything from revolutionary war to civil war to old fossils. They have several buildings including an old school house. You can also visit the cemetery and see the old stones. Ask about the cannon ball hole in the back.

More than just an "old stone fort". The museum grounds include the cemetery, an old one room school house, an old barn, antique piano collection, nice gift shop, law office, Badgley museum, and more. Excellent presentation. Many artifacts. Terrific collection. Outstanding preservation of local history. Particularly enjoyed the military history and collection of muskets and other weaponry used during early... More

I believe you will not be disappointed by the many artifacts of the Schoharie region. Not only the Old Stone Fort but there are other buildings too. There's also a genealogist on site (check for availability) who can help you if you are looking for long lost relatives. (While in town, check out the Palatine House too!)

We decided to visit the Old Stone Fort and spent most of the afternoon there. The whole family enjoyed our visit it kept the interest of our 9 year old and our 17 year old. The fee for admission is reasonable, and we enjoyed looking at the many artifacts. There are a handful of buildings to walk through, take your... More

When we decided to add this museum to our trip, we were honestly not expecting much. We thought it would have a few exhibits, and would be a very short side trip. We were wrong. With multiple buildings, and many many collections; this is absolutely worth the trip. We were there for over two hours just checking out all of... More

If you're tired of super-slick museums, you'll love this place. A docent let my grandson hold a musket. The upstairs collection reminds me of a 19th century cabinet of curiosities with odd items collected by Schoharie residents from around the world. Think brass buttons and stuffed birds. It's a grew place for local history but also just a fun place... More

Important place to visit for anyone interested in Revolutionary War history. The museum / fort / church complex offers an interpretative history of the importance of one building complex in the Revolution, the Civil War and beyond. The Fort survived an attack by Joseph Brant, who then went on to raid the Mohawk Valley.

The museum was not opened when we stopped by, but we enjoyed walking through the cemetery and reading the monuments. If you drive a bit further up the road, you can get out and walk across a covered bridge.

The Old Stone Fort is a wonderful old place in the Schoharie Valley to witness local history of the early revolutionary period for America. They often have wonderful reenactments and other such events. Your children will not be disappointed by the fun they can have at these reenactments. From. Music to all the people dressed in period clothing they go... More

The Schoharie Valley in upstate New York was attacked repeatedly during the Revolutionary War by the British Army and their Iroquois allies. The "Old Stone Fort" withstood those attacks and is today the centerpiece of museum of the Schoharie County Historical Society. The Fort and the annex across the driveway are filled with artifacts that tell the story of life... More
