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

Loved the fort and the history of the area. Museum had lots of interesting things to view. I enjoyed the displays in the rooms outside and the Indian art gallery inside. There is a nice gift shop. We went into a section that had many guns displayed and doubled as a research or board room. While I am not that... More

This is one of the best places to see in leth bridge. The collection of awesome historical items is terrific. Most relate to this area for history buffs. Here is a place you could spend half a day easily. Parking is great. Admission is reasonable.

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
