Fort Ligonier Museum

200 South Market Street

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.

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.

Wonderful recreation of an historical site. Great time to visit is in October during annual Fort Ligonier Days (caution, it gets very, very busy)! Worth the visit if you enjoy history and quaint small towns. Very family friendly.

Good historical information, curated artwork and artifacts. I would go back on a day when there are no special events. We went on a school field trip and were rushed through 12 different information stations that weren't very interesting to the group. The kids left feeling like they didn't have a chance to dive deeper into the history of the fort because of the range of different topics presented. It would have been better to have less different topics, but with more time and discussion for each.

Great museum...tons of information and presented very well...staff is friendly and helpful. Just be aware of when you plan your trip. A winter field trip will let you visit the museum but not the outdoor fort.

One of my favorite places, and with the expansion, it is a complete historical and educational experience for all ages. Adult evening activities are outstanding no matter what the theme is!
