Museum Status

Following the guidance from New York State and the CDC, we will be closed for the 2020 Season. All museum events are delayed and will be rescheduled for the 2021 Season. The office is still open, and work on the museum is still being done. If you have any research questions, please call 518-561-1035. We look forward to seeing you all next year, and hope that you are staying safe and healthy!

Come celebrate the Battle of Plattsburgh with a special edition of Artifact Corner!


While 2020 has brought a lot of challenges to museums around the country, this year we decided to use the limitations to push what we're able to offer. With the start of the Artifact Corner series, we wanted to showcase some of the artifacts that are not able to be displayed within the museum on a regular basis. For the celebration of the Battle of Plattsburgh this year, we are going a step further. In partnership with the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, we're bringing you a close look at 7 different artifacts from the LCAA Collection, all recovered directly from the site of the battle between the American and British fleets in 1814. A video will be released each day, and shared to our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Let us know which one is your favorite!
