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.

I loved the guide of the fort. He gave us a lot of details of the life of a soldier and their wives. He also demonstrated how to shoot 2 of their guns.

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!

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

This was interesting to me because my Gr Gr Gr grandpa helped defend Canada from the invading Americans. Most interesting was seeing how the lower class enlisted soldiers and several families lived in one barracks compared to the middle and upper class men in another....More

This was a great place to visit. We learned all about the various battles that took place here and saw the way they lived in the 1800's. The musket demonstration was fun. Most of the building here were burnt to the ground during battle and...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
