Our visit was hugely enhanced by the excellent guided tour. Wandering around just looking at stuff would have been mildly interesting; the informative tour and the musket demonstration really brought it all to life.

We visited Fort George in the summer after spending the day in Niagara On The Lake. After visiting other forts in Ontario, I'm happy to report that Fort George was perhaps one of my favourite little treasures of history. From the displays to the storytelling and music, our couple of hours there were very enjoyable. Next time, we'll bring the... More

Interesting, very busy at Navy Hall. Good way to start the year with the Friends of Fort George in costume.

Fort George has been recreated and survives one original building. Walking thru the tunnel to the gunners tower on the stone cobbles and climbing up to see what the guards at the time saw was very cool. The plaques in both French and English give you the sense of what life was like back then. Walking into the cells and... More

Had a nice experience at Fort George this summer...After a pleasant lunch and walkabout the shops of Niagara on the lake. It was easily accessed on foot from the town. The site is open and expansive, offering great views over the river and surrounds. We found the in-period,and in-character volunteers very knowledgable and personable. They really added to the atmosphere... More

Great views across the river to the USA. Small enough to get your hands around. Gives you a perspective on what fighting a battle was like 200 years ago. Pretty location, extremely close to the town center.

The highlight was the demonstration of musketry. The demonstrator was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.

The tour guides make the visit worthwhile. Interesting to learn about the tough life of soldiers a century ago. Touring the fort is a way to gain a broader perspective of the War of 1812 and its importance to the emergence of Canada as a nation. Very well preserved structure.

My husband and I visited Fort George this summer and were truly intrigued with the vibrant lively way that history is represented here. The staff made the experience realistic, educational, interesting and fun. This is a great place to bring children and adults alike.
