Great site to explore the early career of Washington and the French and Indian War. Awesome playground for children. Excellent inside exhibits, infrmative guides and costumed reenacors.

The fort as such is not overly interesting, but the center carries both interesting (short, like 15-20 minutes) movie documentary and also exhibits on the battle and building of National Road (40).

Visitor center is nice, worth a 30 minute stroll through. The "fort" is a small fenced in area with some low earthworks around it. Worth an hour if you are in the area.

Lots of information inside the center, little fort outside is nice too but was expecting something bigger. The gentleman who provided info on the forts history was very knowledgeable.

Had a chance to stop and take a look. We were driving down HWY 68 where we saw the signs for the battle field. We arrived after the visitors center had closed, but it is a self guided tour out to the large meadow and...More

The visitor center includes high-quality and very thorough (if not always crystal clear) exhibits on both the battle of Fort Necessity and the National Road. Expect to spend about an hour here between the orientation film, the exhibits and the battlefield itself. Worthwhile.
