Visitor in the Key to Libery exhibit


All of the museum buildings are accessible at grade level or with ramps built in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Approximately one-third of the museum site consists of open grounds, which include gardens, grassy and natural areas, pine groves, picnic areas, gravel walkways, outdoor exhibits, and facilities for watercraft at North Harbor. The replica 1776 gunboat Philadelphia II is located in the water, at the base of a steep gravel path and is not wheelchair accessible. However, two films and a 1/6 scale model in the exhibit "Key to Liberty: The Revolutionary War in the Champlain Valley" provide an alternative source of information about the gunboat and its history. The replica canal schooner Lois McClure is only accessible by stairs. However, interpreters are always available during hours of operation for questions.
