we had good weather, enjoyed the outdoor walking tour of the fort and grounds. The inside displays and short movie clips were fantastic. You would not have to be a history buff to enjoy. It is for all levels of interest.

Thought this would be a quick visit. The staff here are so welcoming and knowledgeable you didn’t want to leave. We learned so much from the guides. They were so passionate about the fort and it’s history. Don’t miss this!

We took our five grand boys to Fort Stanwix for a long afternoon. They explored, dressed up in period costumes, watched several movies and listened to a docent explain about using canons. They even did some "homework" and got sworn in as Junior Park Rangers....More
