Fort George is a great patriotic experience. To walk in the steps of those who have defended our country was profound. The grounds and buildings are very well maintained. The Parks Canada staff are very knowledgable and curteous. This is a very family friendly historic attraction.

Within walking distance of most Niagara-on-the-Lake hotels, this site is worth at least a short visit. We left with a better understanding of life in early 19th century Upper Canada.

Well done museum explaining how the War of 1812 effected this area. We were there at 3 PM and saw the re-enactment of a scene from John Bull that the soldiers put on in Montreal after the end of the war to benefit the town people that lost their homes during the war.

Well worth the visit. In addition to touring the barracks, etc. there was a fife and drum demonstration as well as a rifle demonstration. Most informative and entertaining.

We came here with friends and their children for the afternoon while visiting the Niagara area. We didn't realize that because it's ran by Parks Canada, you are permitted to bring your dog! They informed us that if you bring a small dog you are permitted to bring it in the buildings provided that you carry your dog while inside.... More

My wife and I only had a morning to spare before a Shaw Festival theatre performance and decided to go to Fort George. They were having fife and drum performances and I wish that we had more time to be there as the groups that we heard were excellent. We did get to see most of the fort and I... More

Fantastic fort and really well done! The kids received Explorer books (which you get at every national park in Canada) and loved going through the fort and filling out their activities. We felt that the fort was really well done, from musket demonstrations to games of the 1800s for the kids. The interpreters were great and you could tell that... More

We arrived just as the fort opened... They credited back out parking payment, yeah. We saw the fife and drum parade for the flag raising, an excellent musket demonstration and the canon demonstration. The guides explaining the demonstrations and in the various buildings were excellent and engaging. They offered up information without being asked and all appeared to thoroughly enjoy... More
