Outstanding. A bit of history for all ages. Educational as well as fun. Buildings recreated with historic accuracy. Comparable to Old Fort Niagara just across the river, although unlike Ft Niagara, the only original building still standing is the gunpowder magazine. One can imagine the...More

just happened to stop here and a war reenactment was going on. What a unique experience. Wrist bands gets you into the fort. Take a step back in history! I loved the gift shop too!

We arrived late in the afternoon, so probably spent about 90 minutes here until it closed. Very interesting to learn a little of the struggle of the early 1800's. It reminded us very much of Australian reproductions of towns/forts at the same time (without the...More

Volunteers and staff in period costume were friendly and very approachable. Musket demonstrations throughout the day....More

This was a highlight of my time in Canada. The guides where informative and engaging. Despite telling the same story many times it felt as fresh as if it was brand new. I am keen on history but this filled in a whole new chapter...More

The people working there were absolutely amazing! They were in period dress and were in character, but not over-the-top in character which made them more approachable. The fort itself is mostly reconstructed, which we didn’t know beforehand, but wouldn’t stop us from going. Great activity...More

We went in the off season so there were no crowds and we got to see and read everything taking our time. It is different than some of the other historic sites as you can get close to all of the items in the buildings...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
