Keith made the museum special. He gave us a personalized tour and told us stories and background info to make the museum come alive. He was extremely knowledgable. Have a much better understanding of war of 1812 and of Plattsburgh's role in it

It is a self-guiding tour with a short movie to help you get started. The paintings and information on each descripts the battle and military strategies. The diorama is well detailed to give even a better look. A new exhibit is underway, should be completed...More
