I guess it's not fair to compare this "attraction" with the other world class attractions in the area. We had seen the history this fort presents in other attractions. However, that being said - if we had not been on a road trip and were just visiting Lethbridge - it would have been a more interesting visit. Also, we were... More

This re-creation of an old NWMP fort is well laid out with easy access, recordings, videos and displays. They have restored all of the interior rooms with full furnishings. There are wagon rides, horses and ponies. A great museum of firearms. We spent an hour and a half and could likely have spent another 20 min or so.

Our visit started with a well-done history lesson. We enjoyed seeing the 12 fully appointed rooms in the fort. My husband & I have visited many forts throughout the western United States, but none have come close to the amount of artifacts we saw here More activities are offered in July & August, but it's worth a visit anytime.

It had been quite a while since I had been to visit Fort Whoop-Up. So I decided to take my elderly relatives to see this local attraction. We were suprised at the detail in the re-creation of the different rooms within the Fort. It was like walking into the past. I really enjoyed the 'hands-on' displays, while uncle wanted to... More

It is a wonderfully kept museum. It was great to see a stuffed life sized Buffalo - you never get the full size of them otherwise. The buildings were great to walk through. And we did the stage coach ride. They have ponies & goats that just wander around - th goats will steal your children's ice cream -consider yourself... More

History of the whiskey traders , They also had samples of fry bread that was being cooked as a demonsration by Native Women. The tour and the guides where very informative.

It's a short visit in the heart of Lethbridge. I enjoyed my quick visit in the summer. There are animals and lots of little exhibits to visit. It's a great place to take a family or even a first date.

What a GR8! line for an old whiskey trading fort! 'cause ya just never knew for sure back then! But TODAY, is always a GR8! day to visit the Fort in Lethbridge. A lot of us locals overlook the tremendous wealth of artifacts and history housed down in our river bottom. I mean, after-all, you do not get a Canadian... More

The original fort has been recreated in the Oldman River valley running through Lethbridge. The displays were fascinating and staff very helpful. There was a film at the beginning of the exhibits that discussed the complete history of the fort and the impact on both the aboriginal peoples and the newcomers to the area. Definitely a must see if in... More
