Plan A Field Trip
Teachers are welcome to bring their classes to Castle Clinton National Monument. Either self-guided, ranger-guided, or just for a quick peek, students of all ages are welcome at the historic fort. However, please note that one chaperone is required for every ten children (under the age of 18).
Groups of 10 or more can make reservations for private programs by contacting us at (212) 344-7220. Reservations are available any time Monday through Sunday between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. Groups must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance.
Did You Know?
Castle Clinton was very nearly destroyed in the 1940’s as part of a project to build a second Brooklyn bridge. The project was not stopped, but moved underground. Today the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel runs directly under the building.
