Our oldest has been asking for quite some time to visit The Fort. It found the prices to be a little steep for individuals but the family prices are a steal. We wanted to see the play but it is only playing the later part of the week. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the scavenger hunt and the size of the... More

The folks that were "assigned" the task of taking "control" of the laws of the new land, were a lot tougher and smarter, than we are today!! Can't imagine trying to do what they did, in the quarters they occupied, in a wilderness land, that was wold on the surface, and wilder in the imagination. We got a chance to... More

This stop on a road trip was fairly disappointing. The staff was uninterested and disengaged, and the facility itself was good in parts and lacking in others. The part connected with the main check in, dealing with the rcmp history was informative, but the rest of the fort was fairly uninteresting with nothing hands on and not a lot of... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. There is a lot of history here to go through, and the Fort is great. The treasure hunt is a lot of fun for the kids, including our 5 year old. The staff were all very friendly as well. It is worth a visit. We were not able to see the musical ride unfortunately... More

The museum was interesting, to read about the beginning of the RCMP and the life of the mounties in the 19th century. There isn't much to see in the Fort itself. It took us about an hour for the visit. There is free parking across the street.

We are from the U.S. so really enjoyed Fort Macleod and learning about the history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. We went in June so we missed the live mounted police show so I would recommend going in July or August if you can. They also have more events going on for kids during July and August. There were...
