You learn about the history of Edmonton and they have exhibits for both the very young to their grandparents. Expect to spent at least 5 hours there. Do not for get to ride the train, visit the candy store and bakery.

We have visited Fort Edmonton many times. Our children always enjoy it. It is a very large park and so you will need to be prepared to walk to really let the history sink into your being. The actors portraying characters from the past are very well prepared and well informed. They interact very well with visitors. We love the... More

Fort Edmonton park is very well laid out. It's best to take the train to the fort and walk your way through the time periods. I try to go every year and I never get tired of going.

Canada's largest living history museum, Fort Edmonton allows visitors of all ages to travel back in time and experience the people and times. Well informed role players are ready to answer questions and share their stories. Authentic transportation makes getting around fun and easy. The well organized layout gives a sense of travelling through time "back to the future".

Enjoyable for the entire family. Venue makes you feel like you are in the time period showcased. Casual atmosphere allows you to wander at your own pace. Make sure you ride the train.

This is a really great place to bring visitors, anyone interested in Edmonton's history; or simply anyone who'd like to experience the feeling of walking through the streets of a Canadian frontier city at different times in its history. Very well executed, you'll feel you were there in 1846; and the kids will love the train, street cars and the... More

On your entrance to the park you can take a trip back in time and ride the steam train to the Fort. There are Houses and Buildings... More

This is a really good day out and an excellent opportunity to fully immerse yourself in times gone by; late 1800's, early 1900's and the 1920's. Don't miss Capitol Theatre!!
