Attended Fort George on a weekend when the buildings were open. Check before going as buildings not always open but the grounds can be experienced and young kids love to run around and explore even when buildings are closed. The volunteers were all dressed in...More

Was open for the end of March Break - very few visitors so we basically had the grounds to ourselves to wander around and look at the displays. Interesting to talk to the guides about the history of the war of 1812. You can get...More

Visited this in October on a whim. Was driving through and figured we'd stop. Great gift shop with nice historical information, books, and souvenirs. There is a tour of the Fort. If you visit make sure you stay for the musket demonstration.

This was a side stop for us and I'm so glad we did! Very interesting place with an original building still standing from 1812. The gentleman that did the musket demo was fantastic! Probably the best interpreter I've seen. Very informative and entertaining. He said...More

In one sense, Fort George is a typical reconstructed early19th century fort. But it's a notch above most of those I've seen. The scenery in the beautiful countryside along the Niagara River is spectacular, and the tour guides and demonstrators are excellent. Be sure to...More

The fort lies on the edge of Niagara on the Lake. We went off-season and the only thing open is the parking lot. However the exterior of the fort is visible and you can get out of the car and walk around the outside of...More

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.

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
