Fort Ticonderoga is set to open for the season on June 30th. During the initial open phase, only exterior spaces will be open to visitors Tuesday-Sunday from 9:30 am until 5 pm (last ticket sold at 4:30 pm).
This year, until otherwise announced, general admission capacity will be capped at 400 visitors and advance on-line ticketing is required by visiting the Fort’s website.
Fort Ticonderoga’s 2020 opening was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. Numerous measures are in place to ensure staff and visitor safety and reflect guidance from appropriate government agencies and health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) including required physical distancing, new signage to manage visitor flow and expectations, and required face coverings when physical distancing is not possible.
This year, Fort Ticonderoga programming is debuting a new chapter in its story, exploring the British occupied fort in the years just before the American Revolution.
