Excellent museum and guides plus the reconstructed fort give a complete view of the war on the Niagara river. Did you know the Americans invaded Canada? Delightful staff and excellent exhibits. Highly recommended.

We spent a few hours away the fort. The film introduction is worth seeing, and taking the guided tour adds to the experince.
