We took our Edmonton and Raymond Grandkids down to Fort Whoop Up and they had such a great time checking out all the really cool rooms and loved the all the animals. We were even lucky enough to be there when they were firing the canon! Finished the day off with a Stagecoach ride, both the drivers were very informative... More

A fantastic guided tour, and if you visit in the warmer months they set off a cannon at the end. Super fun! The staff are great. Very friendly and know their facts. They will give you a 50% off voucher for the Nikka Yuko Gardens and Galt museum.

It doesn't take very long to tour throught, but we were able to take in the firing of the cannon and a ride in the carriage. It was fun, interesting and our kids enjoyed it. Good value for our admission.

I enjoyed visiting the fort and learning about the history of the area. Be sure to see the movie first as it will help explain the fort and its place in Canadian and American history

I loved my experience at Fort Whoop-Up. All of the room in the indoor and the outdoor buildings are absolutely amazing. Lots of history on the Blackfoot, the area, and of the site. The interpreters were absolutely amazing and had a wealth of information. They were very knowledgeable. The gift shop is very large and offers many options from books... More

Interesting for parents, fun for the kids. Lots of tame animals to pet. However, if you have horse fanatic in the group be sure to book your horse ride when you pay.

It is a cute fort and has lots of history. Our little boy got to collect eggs and go on a stagecoach ride, so that was pretty cool. Most of the interesting stuff is actually hidden when you enter the fort and you have to walk through the rooms along the walls of the fort to get a feel for... More

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.
