Fun at Fort Stanwix Nat’l Monument

From the NPS website:
There are a lot of fun things to do at Fort Stanwix, in the Visitor Center, or around the grounds!  For example, you can:

  • See a “Please Touch!” table 
  • Decide and declare your allegiance to the Crown or to Independence
  • Build your own wooden fort
  • See a model of the fort
  • Shop at the bookstore/gift shop
  • Become a Junior Ranger

Some fun activities from Fort Stanwix National Monument…

  • “Adventures on the Carry”
    For ages 3 to 6, a fun filled expedition where children will meet new friends and see many new things. An exciting way for you and your child to explore Fort Stanwix!! To participate in this activity when you arrive at the park, please ask a Ranger at the Marinus Willett Center information desk.
  • Can You Build a Fort?
    • Are you having trouble imagining life during the American Revolution? Why don’t you do what this Junior Ranger did and build your own fort!
    • This Junior Ranger spent a lot of time completing his popsicle stick Fort Stanwix. It has a draw bridge and even four bastions. He even found cannons and model soldiers to put inside of it to represent a siege!
    • You can make your own fort out of anything from popsicle sticks, to blocks, to cardboard!
