Been on tours here many times both while in school and after. Always interesting and informative, whether you're on one of their typical daytime tours or their Fall Ghost Tours. Would definitely recommend checking this place out when you have the chance.

There is absolutely nothing to see. Parking is so expensive. Overall disappointing. Not worth a visit

The history of this place is fascinating and well presented; it is well worth a visit. The actors/historians in costume really added to the experience.

Having said that, I enjoyed the quick tour and demonstration that's included with admission. I learned something new about the Niagara area and Canadian history.

From the plantive sound of the tin whistle that the guard on duty was playing when we walked towards the Fort to the enthusiast young guides in historic costumes, the experience at Fort George was informative and enjoyable. The smell of baking bread. The sound...More

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

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
