The staff here are very pleasant and informative. The musket demonstration was interesting and humorous at the same time! We found all of the placards and explanations to be well written and interesting. The displays were nicely done.

We visited Fort George during Easter Sunday. Being early in the season, there was not many guides around but still a great self-guided visit. Using the Canada 150 pass, there's no reason not to visit this great place. We have seen 2 guards while doing...More

The staff was extremely helpful & it was fun to watch a group of school kids in "a day as a soldier'...in red coats and all! They also hold reenactments, have several buildings to visit within the fort walls and have done a nice job...More

Although closed at the time of our visit, we were able to walk the inside, and take pictures of some artifacts. We would have learned more with a guide, but still pleasant enough for an outing.

We visited with our daughter, her husband, and our two grandchildren, ages 11 and 12. Everyone loved it! Personnel were dressed in period costume and the kids got to try some on too. Musket firing was impressive. A small fort that is extremely well preserved!

Fort George is rich with information. Great for families, expect to spend at least 1 hour but you could easily take up 2. Bring drinks/snacks.

Grateful that you got your answer. Since it it Canada's 150th Anniversary, National Parks are, or at least were, giving free admission, just pay for parking. ENJOY!

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
