The history of Fort Ligonier began in September 1758 and was concluded in March 1766, embracing the period of the French and Indian War and Pontiac’s War. Today, the story of this time period is told through the remarkable Fort Ligonier museum exhibits and a fully reconstructed and restored fortification.

Excellent museum! Very well presented with interesting exhibits on colonial era western Pennsylvania. Well staffed with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Take time to explore the fort after the museum. Located a few blocks from downtown Ligonier near shopping, restaurants and museums too. Right off of Rt 30 the historic old Lincoln Highway. Highly recommended.

The fort is awesome. You can tell that a lot of effort and work goes into the displays. We had a very knowledgeable guide and she was wonderful with the kids, answering all of their questions. The town center is under construction, so traffic was a little weird ... But it only made us want to come back to see what it'll look like when it's done. Good job, Ligonier!

A very special and excellently presented collection of artifacts and information about our colonial past. This is a great resource of hurricane interpretation to appreciate. The passion and knowledge demonstrated by the curator Erica Nuckles is brilliant. This is a wonderful reason to get off the turnpike and tour along Route 30.

The place was very fun and interesting! Very informative. There isn't any guide inside the museum but there was someone out in the actual for area showing us around and answering questions that we had. The only down side was that they closed at 5 and we didn't have enough time to fully go through all of the fort and museum.

We stopped by on a spontaneous day trip. The people here had a lot of great stories to tell about the line of forts the British built on the way to fight the French in Pittsburgh. They had replica cannon and discussed how they were transported and used. I thought it was a lot better experience than the first Pitt museum, which was the big fort at the edge of the frontier.
