This pretty little museum, situated near the resplendent and newly-furbished fountain at the point, is one of the best presentations of the French and Indian War I've seen. As someone who has grown up in western Pennsylvania, it was exciting to see how my home area became the first flashpoint in this early "world war." The museum itself is an excellent demonstrate of how far historic site museums have come in the last 30 years. The figures of native americans are shown accurately, without the usual stereotypes that one sees (and grimaces at) in other places. The military actions are analyzed with clear, simple explanations of strategic objectives, and consequences in imperial gains (or losses) and damages wrought upon native populations and the soldiers themselves. The admission price for this museum is very low compared to the value received. I highly recommend this place!
