This was a great afternoon adventure. We have two boys (10 and 6) and they both absolutely loved this fort. They were interested the entire time. When we first entered the fort they gave the kids a sheet of things to look for, check off and answer some questions. If you finish this you get a prize at the end.... More

Give yourself time to walk through and enjoy the presentations and the history lessons with the staff dressed in period costume. Another wonderful example of the Canadian National Parks Service.

Wen to visit Fort George on a very cold day, however staff was outstanding, explaining various aspect of the fort. We were dressed for the weather, and the staff, not so much, yet they toughed it out. Lots of great opportunities for learning, good for kids and adults alike.

The Self guided walking tour of Fort George is rewarding and interesting but definitely take the guided tours as well. There is an ~ 45 minute tour through the main buildings that recounts the history the fort and lifestyle of the soldiers and (in some cases) their families. There is also an ~ 15 minute demonstration of the English Musket... More

Parks Canada sites are free this year as it is Canada's 150th anniversary. I had forgotten my park pass in the car but the ticket office said it was no problem and gave us two tokens to enter. The site is open on the weekend in winter and most of the buildings are heated. It was interesting touring the building... More

The day of our tour it was pouring down rain. The tour guide was very personable and they kept the whole thing amusing. There was still plenty to see, even in the rain.

This is a fun way to learn the history of the war of 1812. The staff was very knowledgeable and were very hands on showing us how solders and others lived at the fort in 1812. The Fire Power demonstration was very cool with solders firing their muskets and canons. The musket demonstration from Calvin was very good with some... More

This place was very interesting. The staff are all dressed in period costume and are very knowledgeable when it comes to the battles and circumstances that took place in the area. There are musket firing demonstrations, musicians who explain the types of instruments played in the era and why as well as the opportunity to dress as a soldier and... More
