This was a lot of fun! I went with my daughter who is 15. I wouldn’t bring young children to this. We walked through the fort and the buildings, following our guide with the lantern, while they told spooky ghost stories. It was a blast...More

I had been to Niagara-on-the-lake previously but somehow missed this little gem. It's worth a visit if you're in town, we managed to squeeze it in before we left. It's a living museum so many of the staff are dressed and play the part of...More

We visited Fort George during autumn when the colors were popping out, which made the visit very nice. Several actors in costume explained the living conditions of the time and the battles. It’s a small attraction but done very well to be educational as well...More

This is an interesting place to visit. There is a lot of walking involved. I really enjoyed the musket demonstration, the man was very informative. Wrap up warm if it’s a cold day, it gets quite windy. Good for people interested in history.

Same experience as most forts, but the costumed guides make it stand out. Explorer books for kids to stay interested. Had a great day.

The Fort is a great setting to learn a bit of Canadian/US history. I highly recommend taking one of the tours; they are free and the guides are excellent. A tour of the enlisted man's barracks provides a snapshot of a soldier's life that is...More

An excellent bilingual tour back to 1813 and the BNA war against the young USA. All tour guides were in period military uniform to thoroughly explain all aspects of the restored fort protecting the Niagara river approach to British North America. Reasonable tourist washrooms and...More

My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls... More
