This branch of the National Park Service just opened a new Interpretive Education Center, which is far superior to their old visitor's center. The reproduction of the fort itself is not interesting enough to warrant more than a few minute's interest, but the visitor's center makes all the history come alive. There is a new, world-class educational film that brings the entire story of the fort, from Jumonville Glen to the actual battle at Fort Necessity to life in an exciting way for young children. Adults will enjoy it also, as well as all the new displays inside.

Re-enactments are held periodically, which depict the British, French, and Indians. Educational talks are also given by park volunteers in full costume. Nice gift shop with many appropriate items for sale, as well as some wonderful artwork.

Adjacent units include Jumonville Glen, Mt. Washington Tavern, and Braddock's Grave.
