Friendly staff. Eager to show and explain. It is not very big but it has good historical items and gives a good background of conflicts between natives and settlers.

Been coming here off and on for years. Good interpretive guides. Don't miss the often- overlooked graves of the Indians hanged after the riel rebellion, located nearby.

Take a self guided tour of the historical buildings or have an interpreter lead you through an hour and a half tour of the park. Educational and well worth the visit.

This review is in response to the more unenthusiastic reviews below. (The positive ones do a good job of underscoring the place's attractions for visitors.) We arrived less than 15 minutes before closing, but managed to attach ourselves to a group that was about to...More

This is a nice historical location that has been taken care of and maintained. We would recommend the audio tour as well as it just adds to the history of the area.

Grew up in Battleford and have been visiting since the days when our family could go in afterhours and out of season for picnics or to walk our dogs inside the fortifications. I always enjoy spending going through every couple of years to check out...More
