Our guide was very engaging and relayed the history of the times. Able to view restored officer and enlisted men’s quarters, see a musket demonstration and wander the grounds without a guide at our leisure. Well worth the time.
We were blessed with a beautiful day to visit the site. Entry is very reasonable and the site consists of a large, grassy area surrounded by a wooden palisade with embankments in places, all of which was built fairly recently and is in an excellent...More
Did the guided tour which was good. Gave lots of information that was in addition to the signs and booklet. Worth seeing the living conditions that people of the time had to endure. Good musket demonstration. Kids would love it!
An interesting place made more so by guides etc being in period dress. Well worth joining one of the guided tours which still allow you to go back or onto visit other areas not included. Do go to the musket display where the musket is...More

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and answered many unusual questions. They were able to help us experience what it was like living and fighting in the fort. Too bad about the discrepancies between the conditions for the common soldiers and the officers. I was...More

Your entrance fee helps pay for all the costumed performers (the "living history"). The ones I saw were all well-prepared and entertaining. If you spend just two hours - you will only briefly hear some of them. The fort... More
Your entrance fee helps pay for all the costumed performers (the "living history"). The ones I saw were all well-prepared and entertaining. If you spend just two hours - you will only briefly hear some of them. The fort is pretty big too and has good displays. It takes a while just to walk around. You are right by Lake Ontario and the mouth of the Niagara river which provide excellent scenery. I think I would plan on four hours - although it obviously can be done in much less.
