Very informative and interesting. Take as little or as long a time as you like. We did self guided tour.

There is much to see in this one area of Vancouver. Officers row, the Fort, and the army quarters that have been abandoned and handed over to the National Park service. The real attraction in this area is the Fort and Officers row. All within walking distance. Get out and walk, I recommend it.

Will be back. Great for family. Friendly staff & special occasions listed. I enjoyed the historic garden in front of the Old Fort. Laid out very well. Many local agencies have "adopted" some of the buildings for upkeep. Plan to visit the Grant restaurant next time.

With Fort Vancouver, Officer's Row, and the Pearson Airpark there is lots to do and see. A great place to visit and learn some history.

The Fort Vancouver employees put on a great demonstration in all the buildings. It was like we were back in 1869! Many antiques are distributed around the buildings.

The cool thing about Fort Vancouver starts with the British flag flying that sets the stage for this outpost of the British Empire. A tour of Chief Factor John McLoughlin's house leads to interesting tales of the people and lifestyle from 1825-1845. I found shocking and sad the story of the fur trade. One warehouse has dozens of pelts--beaver, mink,... More

Walking on these grounds gives you a sense of history. Stop in at the visitors center for more information. They have a great hands-on display for children.
