We visited the Fort last summer and enjoyed it immensely. The young people working there were enthusiastic and happy to answer questions. Our 13 yo was able to wander/run around by himself. There's a fair amount of walking, so comfortable shoes are a plus. Good to have water if it's a warm day as it's very open.

It was a self guided site, You walk at your own pace and read...They do have people dressed up like British soldiers which added a classic touch...Make sure you get there before a bus load of kids show up, or you'll miss out on shooting the old gun.

We visited Fort George during a visit to Niagara on the lake. We really enjoyed the visit to Fort George and highly recommend you take the look around with one of the tour guides. They make the history of the fort come alive.

Pleasant candlelit evening stroll through the Fort George National Historic site. Great way to learn about our history and also hear some spine tingling stories about some of the unofficial residents of the area. Who knows, you may even encounter an apparition of your own!

Had a great day exploring the old fort in Niagara. We went along on a tour so learned much more than we would have by going around on our own. Such a great place to visit and appreciate what the soldiers had to endure

The fort was well worth the visit. The uniformed guides are pleasant and knowledgeable. All buildings have been restored and are period furnished. We even had a musket demonstration.

If you have kids it's a must visit! You and the kids will be surprised how short the beds used to be and HOW they operated. Educational and thought provoking. Located in the prettiest spot. If still feel historic head to Old Navy Hall behind it, the fort on the edge of the golf course, Laura Secord's home in Queenston... More
