For couples there are lots to see and do. The Bed & Breakfast stay at the hotel is very good. Not only do you get superb meals and a fine room, but you get to wander the grounds after the crowds have left. The staff is always friendly and want your stay to be great.

Logically thought out for visitors to travel through time with many interesting pieces to look at. All the staff could answer questions on the history of the area and the items on display.

This is a great place to spend a few hours or a whole day on your visit to Edmonton. The old time amusement park is great for everyone. Enjoy a ride on a stage coach, train or old trolly car.

Fort Edmonton Park is chalk full of history and is interesting for the very young right up to Seniors. The volunteers are friendly and full of information. We like to break up our time for coffee and a snack mid way so we do not tire out too quickly.

The kids always enjoyed it when we went in the summer and now the grand kids are excited going too. And bring your camera because you will get lots of opportunity to... More

Great place to visit as resident of Edmonton and as a tourist. It shows the history and the buildings are well preserved. Make sure you visit the bakery story for fresh bread and cookies.

Take a step back in time and see how life was really lived "back in the day". I highly recommend this for everyone and is our must see for visiting out of town friends and family.

Plan on a few hours to enjoy everything and take the kids and grandkids. A great place to go back in time and see how things were made and how they lived. An awesome revenue for a wedding. Take the train ride around the park.

A great time to spent with the family. A lot of information through all the super volunteers. It will bring you right back to pioneer times. Have been there with the kids and visitors numerous times. Always fun!
