“Recreating History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

The original fort has been recreated in the Oldman River valley running through Lethbridge. The displays were fascinating and staff very helpful. There was a film at the beginning of the exhibits that discussed the complete history of the fort and the impact on both the aboriginal peoples and the newcomers to the area. Definitely a must see if in Lethbridge.

“loved the fort and the history of the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

Loved the fort and the history of the area. Museum had lots of interesting things to view. I enjoyed the displays in the rooms outside and the Indian art gallery inside. There is a nice gift shop. We went into a section that had many guns displayed and doubled as a research or board room. While I am not that knowledgeable on the subject of guns and didn't think I had any desire to be, there was a gentleman in there that was very helpful and prompted good conversation by telling all and asking me to ask him about any of the guns. All staff was very helpful that I spoke with but he was especially friendly. I enjoyed my visit there very much.

“Grandkids enjoying Fort Whoop Up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

We took our Edmonton and Raymond Grandkids down to Fort Whoop Up and they had such a great time checking out all the really cool rooms and loved the all the animals. We were even lucky enough to be there when they were firing the canon! Finished the day off with a Stagecoach ride, both the drivers were very informative and fun!

“Informative and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

A fantastic guided tour, and if you visit in the warmer months they set off a cannon at the end. Super fun! The staff are great. Very friendly and know their facts. They will give you a 50% off voucher for the Nikka Yuko Gardens and Galt museum.
