Very nice views of the NY side and the new bridge. Museum itself is good for a quick visit. Be sure to take a ride over the bridge, it is free and gives a great view of both sides of the lake.

Nice park but nothing great to see and too small to have a nice walk. Not much space for picnic. Overall, if you have other alternatives: do not come here.

The museum is in an old 1700's brick house right next to the Vermont side of the new Crown Point bridge. It's a beautiful and interesting setting with a long history of human occupation. Exhibits change over time but focus on the uses of this...More

This is a small house museum, not very expensive, and will take you less than an hour. It has historical exhibits, and you learn the significance of the place in the country's early days. We found the bridge exhibit very interesting. They have displayed some...More
