Took my cousins two kids here. A lot of fun for them and a bit of history for me and the wife. It is very important to have decent weather and we did. Great time.

An awesome place to spend time with people of all ages. Make sure you wear comfy shoes and cloths, as it involves a lot of walking.

This is am amazing place for a close up look at how it used to be! A history lesson for the kids and a fond memory for others. Old buildings set up as they used to be..A store with candy sticks just like Little House on the Prairie. ..A Gem for sure.

Very good, but expensive so bring a lunch/snack and spend the day. Good walking shoes, sunscreen and bug spray a must.

Great place to spend a day. Lots to see, and do. There were chickens roaming the street, staff were in period dress to answer questions and engage in conversation.

The Fort was worth the trip. The only thing that was a downer was not being able to go on the cable car or the wagon because of being in a wheel chair. The train was not running either.

Expect to spend a full day here. Stroll back into yesteryear and visit a recreation of Ft. Edmonton. You will see heritage buildings saved from the wrecking ball as modern Edmonton rebuilt. Ride a train or wagon and stop at many of the functioning businesses. The home-made ice cream was incredible. The blacksmith took the time to explain what he... More
