Though not a destination location, worthwhile if you're in the area. Good information on the French and Indian war -- a conflict I knew very little about. A good 20 minute overview video and a museum worth 45 minutes or so.

If you are into history then I would suggest a visit. We did the tour and the ranger was very knowledgeable. Young kids would be bored out of their shorts and those not into history may struggle.

Fort Necessity is a bit of history that never has been mentioned in any school book. But the story behind Fort Necessity is quite interesting and a good bit of information for all you trivia and history buffs. The visitor's center is large, well laid...More
