The Castle features a variety of offerings. Changing exhibits and long-term installations cultivate interest in the history and culture of northeast Queens. Many materials used are culled from the archival collection, and encourage conversation and inquiry.
Schedule a field trip to the Castle; arrange an in-class program at your school; learn about an after-school program for middle school students; plan an outing for seniors, scouts, or summer campers. Cultural exchange, dialogue and self-discovery are encouraged through demonstration, lecture, and hands-on approach, while supporting learning, curiosity, and creativity in an informal environment.
Performances, lectures, collections, social gatherings, family programs, and current events engage visitors at the Castle, and cultivate appreciation for our area’s historic and cultural resources.
The Castle is available for private rental. The architectural elegance of this Gothic Revival-style building provides the perfect setting for your special event. The charming historic character of Fort Totten on Little Neck Bay will add to the happy memories of your momentous day.
