They are  typically between $7-10 for adults with the same free admission for children. From time to time we have workshops (such as classes on blacksmithing, dulcimer playing , etc). For workshops, visitors pay the general admission fee. Workshop participants are subject to e registration fee which includes the general admission.



As our campus has developed so have the requests for private use of our facility. Currently this has included company picnics, high school reunions, family reunions and organization meetings. Contact us to find out more about holding a private event at Fort New Salem. We currently offer no on site catering but can make arrangements with area vendors. Private rental requests are subject to facility availability.
