What a treat! This detailed reconstruction of a British outpost during the French and Indian War is a delight to the eyes and contains a wealth of information. We enjoyed roaming the installation and learning something new with every step. The official guidebook is detailed an informative. The museum could serve as a model to local or site specific history museums - I spent part of my career developing interpretive material for such museums and I know a good one which I see it. Give yourself plenty of time to absorb all that the site has to offer.

There are picnic tables outside the main building. The town of Lancaster looked inviting and we wish we had planned for a more extended visit - maybe an overnight stay.

Despite living near here, this was the first time we visited Fort Ligonier. The museum was very interesting and tells the story of early Westmoreland county very well. The fort itself was meticulously reconstructed and appeared very authentic. The guide we encountered was extremely helpful and entertaining. He had a wealth of knowledge about the fort and its surroundings.

Easy to get to. Lots of history well presented. Great setup of the fort. The museum on site is really good and includes some really great art ( as a bonus! )

This review is on the town. The blend of shops was very nice. We ate at a little restaurant just outside of the diamond ( the center area of town ) behind the subway shop. .. sorry I forget the name.....it was good. Everything in town was nice except for the traffic and no public restrooms. Had an enjoyable day.
