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.

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
