We went for a live stage show and were amazed at all the history here. The street car was fun to ride. We will be going back this summer

Interpreters, the buildings and everything in between bring to life Edmontons history in an amazing way. There is a fascinating amazing of knowledge held by staff about their characters and struggles as well as the actual history of the time period. Fort Edmonton does an amazing job of really bringing the history to life in fun and creative ways! I... More

It is always refreshing to spend the day experiencing the vibrant history of Edmonton. Best to be prepared to spend a long day in order to experience all of what it has to offer. Starting off with the train ride and then making your way back through the various time periods, experiencing the changes and progression of the community as... More

This is a fun historic sight. From riding an old steam train, to the actual fort and its history it was fun. There is much to see and do, rides for the kids, a playground, picnicking, stores to shop in , just great

I love taking my out if country relatives to this place. It gives such an awesome history if the start of Edmonton. Went last Christmas when they opened to show Christmas back then. All the family had a blast. The photos are from Christmas time. They had a fiddler in the hall playing music. The other is the "school teacher"... More

Fort Edmonton Park is an easy way to enjoy a step back in time and to learn a bit of history. The train ride from the entrance station to the fort sets the tone and provides amusement for young and old. Recreations of the fort structures are meticulous. The actors in period costume maintain good humour as they explain the... More

Thanks so much for this review! Happy to hear you enjoy visiting Edmonton's past. Particularly glad that you mentioned our Hotel Selkirk, Interpretive Staff and the overall atmosphere of the Park. Most of our buildings are either original Edmonton structures or re-creations of them. Thanks again for your review! More

A great place to spend the day. Do feel though that in comparison to other activities a bit pricey for 1 adult admission and 2 kids under 5.

I was there for a business lunch with a group of colleagues. All I can say is that the food was mediocre which is about the best I can rate this restaurant. Portions were relatively small and while it was to be a "home made" type of food, it was far from that.

Having visited a lot of historical sites that recreate the past; this is simply one of the best! Fort Edmonton Park tells stories of Alberta's history like no other historical site in Alberta! They are constantly working on new projects all the time. This is a great place to spend a day with your family. The kids will not only... More

Fort Edmonton is not a military fort. The park itself is a journey back in time, from the times of pelt "hunting" for the Hudson's Bay Company back in the 1800's. The trade with native indiginous population is well presented. The train ride (an antique locomotive powered by steam), is in itself an excellent eye opener as to how the... More

Thanks for your review! That's correct - the Park is open daily during the summer and only for events and special programs during the winter. We are working towards becoming a completely year-round facility in the coming years. Thanks for bringing overseas guests to learn about Edmonton's history! See you again next time. More
