“History lesson”

Very interesting and informative. The recreation in song was fun and the gift shop had neat things. We would recommend it if you're on the island.

“For the history buff, family, or someone curious about the fort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I could have stayed here for several hours longer than we did, but since I was with my wife and father-in-law we had other parts of the Island to explore. I visited every building, went on one guided tour by a soldier, watched the cannon firing demonstration, and took in the view from one of the observation areas. This place is great! I hope to take my children here some day.

“REAL HISTORY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is one of our favorite places to go for a real trip through history! You take a boat over to the island and then you can walk,ride a bike ride a horse or take a horse drawn carriage! We prefered the latter. Tourist shold also take the time to tour the ''Fort Michlamacinac tour that had many indian battles! There is a re-inactment several times a day during the summer season and is preformed extremely well by the local residents of Macinaw City!
THIS IS A REAL MUST SEE!!!!!!!
