Great place, a must see. Great people who were interested in telling me about that time period. Anyone who comes to the city should go to the fort Edmonton .

Wonderful.. buildings to walk in and actually see and touch things up close. Felt like you were back in the day of the various periods. Costumes and settings for interaction. Enjoyed our time there.

Dinner with friends on a Saturday night was a huge disappointment. The menu we were offered had only a few items on it and we were told the full menu was not available as other events were being held. I would imagine that events are booked here every Saturday in the summer, but no where on the website do they... More

From there we got on the streetcar and the driver was very informative. We then went to the 1920's part and... More

My young daughters had fun helping with the chores and especially loved the horses. I suggest for those with younger kids or if it's going to be a hot day to wait about taking the train (free) until the... More

This was my second visit to Fort Edmonton but the first time bringing my kids and it was as much fun seeing it with them as it was when it was just my husband and I. The train is my favourite thing and I love that it drops you off in the past and you can walk through time back... More
