This is the kind of history that we are missing in our schools. We enjoyed the information and the displays were excellent. Eye opening as to how the people of the time survived. Nice gift shop - actually sold furs, buffalo hide, beads etc.

Well decorated with proper artifacts. Nothing to dislike. Staff are helpful and knowlegable. A fun place to visit with local history significance.

This was a possible stop on a family road trip and we are so glad we went! It was an amazing hands on place with gifted interpreters and loads of authentic artifacts to see and touch.

This is a great place to visit, especially during specific times of the year like Christmas and the summer season. The wagon and sleigh rides are super as well in the winter the making of the barley sugar candy. Summer has the TeePee's erected and you learn why it is put up a certain way. The Fort is not in...

there is a video that's about 20 minutes long that tells the tale of how the fort came to be and how it ended. The buildings there are all replicas but they are nice and seem to be true to the era. Lots to look at. My husband was particularly impressed by the "gun room", over 600 guns dating back... More

We took in the Pow-wow at Fort Whoop Up on Canada Day and enjoyed our time at the fort. As the focus of the day was the celebrations we didn't really get the full feel of the fort but what we saw of the historic aspect was also good. We took in native dancing, some story telling and a self... More

Being from Australia I had only seen forts on TV, and really did not know what to expect. The place was great, in a truly hustoric area. All the buildings were full of the everyday items you would find in the 1800s, and the curator was an amazing wealth of knowledge. Some great animals there as well, and a coach... More

Lots of places to explore at both the fort and the surrounding area. Well kept, places for kids to run around, picnic spots, a nature center, lots of trails. A great place to spend some time on the weekend as it lets you get away from the city without getting away from the city.

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
