Make sure you watch the video upon arrival; it provides historical context to what you are about to see. The displays are very well done and the staff were very helpful. A must see when visiting Lethbridge.

Great place to hear about the settlers and the Natives of our great country. It is in the heart of a beautiful area called Indian Battle Park. So you can visit Fort Whoop Up to enjoy all it has to offer as well as afterwards have a picnic in the park. The Fort is also in very close proximity to... More

Visited Fort Whoop Up on a recent holiday to Alberta ... a little out of the main season so not all the attractions happening but still very worth a visit. Its a very interactive experience and really takes you back to the time when the fort would have been in use and coming from the UK certainly gave us a... More

We at the forte had our Christmas party at the fort. Prime Rib dinner with all the fixings. Price and atmosphere were wonderful. If you want to relive the old days at a fair price, where the staff go out of their way to make your visit great I would recommend the fort for staff parties, family get to gethers... More

Visiting the fort is like stepping back in time. Reconstruction is very good and interesting. Its a nice way to spend a few hours.

We visited the Fort Whoop up site and found it to be the most accurate historically of the period whiskey traders - there is a large representation of the Blood tribe as well as the NWMP - highly recommend it for anyone interested in Native History as well as period history

We enjoyed the hot chocolate & the old fashioned Christmas celebration full of history of pioneer days and times gone by. The Fort gives the history of the area which is fascinating. After a visit to the fort enjoy the surrounding Indian Battle Park with it's nature trails and playgrounds.

This old fort was neat and educational. My husband and I visited this museum and the Frank slide along with The Japanese gardens. It was well the money and time that we spent in Canada. We then went on to Cardwell where we visited the Carriage museum and seen just how far we have come from just a short 100... More

On a short road trip up into Alberta, my brother and I stopped at Fort Whoop up, as it was at the base of the High Level Bridge, which first caught our attention. We didn't go inside the Fort, though we did read some of the informational plaques just outside. I really enjoyed wandering the trails just outside, and reading... More
