Group Tour Options
The Marinus Willett Center houses the park's visitor center and bookstore. The story of the people and events that helped determine the fate of a continent are presented in the gallery area through audio/visual presentations, period artifact displays, and hands on activities.
Time: At least 45 minutes is recommended to view all of the exhibits/presentations in the Willett Center.
Have a park ranger lead your group on an in-depth tour of Fort Stanwix, the fort that never fell. The ranger will take your group into a number of the fort rooms from the sutlery to the enlisted men's barracks. In the Hearth Room, you'll see an original fireplace uncovered during the initial archeological excavations of the fort. Schedule extra time to see the fort's audio/visual presentation, "I Was So Wore Out With Fatigue," and to climb the bastions!
Time: At least 60 minutes is recommended for this tour.
See the fort from the British perspective! Discover how close their trenches were to the fort. Learn what the stream on the east side of the fort was used for. Walk the trails in the park and explore!
Time: At least 30 minutes is recommended to walk the trails and view the wayside exhibits.
Is your group within a 50 mile radius of the park? Have the park come to you! These free programs could be a great way to prepare your group for an upcoming visit, a follow-up to your trip to the fort, or an 18th C. topic based discussion around something of interest to your organization.
