After its usual opening date was put on hold due to COVID-19, Fort Ticonderoga will open for the 2020 season on June 30. The admission capacity this summer will be capped at 400 visitors at a time (unless otherwise announced) and advanced on-line ticketing will be required. You may purchase online tickets at www.fortticonderoga.org. The first initial opening phase will only allow visitors access to the exterior spaces during Tuesday through Sunday, from 9:30 am until 5:00 pm. The last ticket for the day will be sold at 4:30 pm.
Numerous measures are now in place to ensure staff and visitor safety in accordance to advice from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other health authorities. Signage to manage visitor expectations and flow, and mandatory face covering when social distancing is not possible will be enacted.
“In our continued quest for excellence in the historic destination experience, we are thrilled to welcome visitors back to Fort Ticonderoga — building family memories, fostering enjoyment in our site’s beauty, and inspiring visitors to discover the power of the past and its meaning to us today,” says Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga’s president and CEO.
