“Just "Plain" Great”

Fort Plain Museum & Historical Park
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2018

My husband and I visited this museum, in early June. It is located in a lovely stone house, on a scenic hilltop, outside of the town proper. We were quite surprised at the number of artifacts, that were well displayed in the main house. The museum addition included an overview of the many battles fought here, during the American Revolution. The property also has an extensive park area, accessible by car, or on foot. This area is pet- friendly, as well. We plan on visiting again, in the near future, and bringing our dog. All in all, this is a unique treasure in Montgomery County.

Visiting relatives in nearby Ilion so we decided make a visit here. We took Hiway 5 on the north side of the Mohawk down from Ilion - a very nice scenic drive (remember to stop and visit the Palatine Church on Hiway 5) - crossing back over the river at Ft Plain. Unfortunately for us the museum was closed that day. The view over the river is nice and I'm sure we will attempt to return again.

Great place to go and learn the history of the Mihawk Valley and ErieCanal. Norman Boller and Brian Mack are doing an excellent job and have something for everyone.

We visited Fort Plain Museum in order to participate in an all-day historical site bus tour of 8 different places. A lot of preparation had gone into the tour as well as the conference. Fort Plain has a lot of items on display and knowledgeable staff to talk about them. The countryside was very pretty and the tour guide knew the area. For $35 I certainly got my money's worth!

This place sets a standard for a small museum becoming an important resource for information on the revolutionary war along the Mohawk River. Great little gift shop and displays. If you get there when they have a special program you might be able to talk to reenactors who are oh so knowledgeable and passionate in what they call 'living history".
