Fort Museum Tour

Native American and history buffs will step back in time and gain rich insight into the colonial life and the French and Indian War, the conflict between the English and the French over the domination of the New World.

Sitting atop a small rise, Fort William Henry commanded the southern end of Lake George from November 1755 to August 1757. The Fort’s history is short but its final tumultuous days have been retold, although inaccurately, in the “Last of the Mohicans” by James Fenimore Cooper.

You'll meet a guide dressed in 18th-century military costume to begin your tour. The guide will explain the weapons and warfare of the period including conducting live firing demonstrations of musket and cannon along with a musket ball molding demonstration.

Following your guided tour, a self-guided tour will take you through the museum and its many exhibits.

Guided tours are conducted every hour on the hour with the last tour ending at 6 pm.

*This tour is a walking tour and does have steps!
