Amazing place where the French and Native Americans with overwhelming numbers were defeated by British forces including Colonel Washington The museum is wonderful but our highlight was talking to the glassblower who replicates the glass wear used in the mid 1700's

Took my kids i watch...twice. I loved the history lesson! The kids enjoyed the cannons and fort itself. Good exercise walking through fort as well as great museum to sit and watch history videos and see antiques. Loved it.

They really did a good job in recreating the fort. Educational and looks like kids really enjoy themselves. They are building an addition to the learning center which should be awesome when it's done.

I think 2-21/2 hours would be about right to see everything and enjoy all the written documentation. If you breezed thru the museum, probably an hour and a half.
