I was very impressed with the staff who treated us to a snapshot of Canadian history. The fort is not large but the staff make up for the lack of buildings as seen at other forts of this era with a practical knowledge of the history and intermixing with visitors. After our tour we had a picnic lunch under the... More

This Fort Malden is on a site with mostly reconstructed or added buildings, but it's over 200 years this fort has been here and you have the history of it to be enjoyed, but the site is also a place that families can go to have a picnic so it has many uses and ample parking. There is no charge... More

we stopped in before heading to dinner on boblo island. its large enough to spend some time but not overwhelming. the price is right.....under $4 a person. the staff was very friendly and they seemed to enjoy the history they talked about. when you asked questions they where able to answer them. the fort is well maintained.

Had a great evening at the Canada party and ice cream festival. Dinner at Riccardo's and excellent live music at fort Malden. Lots to do and see. Many kids having a great time. The fire works were very entertaining. Lots of fun. Can't wait till next year.

Parks Canada has done a fantastic job of maintaining the Fort's grounds and buildings. On Canada Day (July 1), there were many extra activities and live performances. Very educational.

We took our family to Amherstburg for a day trip from the States. The place is not big, but it was very nice. Everyone was very friendly, and we were always greeted "hello, bonjour"! The waterfront is very beautiful and peaceful, and there are several nice places to sit that face the water. We also found the Canadian/British perspective of... More

This is not a large site to visit but well worth it. It is very well maintained, restored and presented. Several guides in period costumes who are well educated on the fort and background of the Fort and the people of the time represented. The grounds and gardens are very well maintained! Anyone around the Detroit area should take an... More

Apart from the informative history you get from Fort Malden, and the events of 1812 you get to know about, there was a show by the guard who took us to the 19th century. He marched in the old fashion and he also showed us a musket and bullet from the old times. It was a nice show. In addition... More
