Very interesting series of ruins of the two forts. The museum is small but very well done and the movie givens a great overview of the locale and its importance.

If you are into history be sure to stop here after seeing the Lake Champlain Lighthouse just across the street. We hiked and climbed all around the battlements, which are rather extensive. Just a little piece of history of the area well-preserved.
