If you're a history buff, especially the War of 1812 this is a must visit when in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area. Make it part of a day trip to NOTL when going to the Shaw Festival. The fort is well preserved and has many time specific artifacts. There are daily reenactments so hopefully your visit is properly timed. Staff appears to... More

It was a nice place to catch up on some history at the fort. It was a pleasant day for a country drive and we passed the Fort while sight seeing in Canada.

Well worth the tour if you are into history. Gives you a nice flashback and how it was 200 years ago.

Small, but interesting. The entrance fee was a little more than I expected for what was there. All the employees were friendly and helpful. The musket demonstration was interesting.

We got the $12 return shuttle bus from the floral clock. Short stop off here before catching the free shuttle bus into Niagara on the lake

Excellent presentation of the War of 1812 history. The recreation of how the British soldiers lived was very good

We enjoyed our visit. The Fort is quite large, so expect some walking. As far as I could see, wheelchairs should have no problems. Take and use the map provided at the gate, its useful. The first building you come to, on the left, is a barracks, but it contains displays, maps, and a good overview of the War of... More

Find out what early 19th century life in Canada was really like. The Fort provides an eye-opening experience to what our founding pioneers endured to get Canada going and growing for us in 2015. It gives one a new appreciation for what went on before us.
