A great open air museum!

This is always a great trip. You can spend the day and evening. Lots to see and to touch. You can really explore the history and the river valley makes for a scenic pick nick spot.

We had a super fun day at Fort Edmonton! The workers were in character and did a fantastic job at having conversations with us and our children as if we were in their time period. We loved the steam engine ride and every time period. Our kids especially enjoyed the carnival rides. The only thing we didn't like were the... More

Enjoyed the Fort Edmonton Park, the weather was cool, not too hot. A lot of walking, and visiting nostalgia. Some of the staff were heavily engaged in their role. Witnessed a debate about suffrage, which was very well done. It was a very interesting time back then and it is difficult nowadays to imagine. They all had it quite hard,... More

Great place to hang out for the day a lot to do for families! Also some history! They have people dressed in old time clothing and some exhibits! The old jail! A haunted house if you believe in that kind of stuff!

Fort Edmonton Park was an excellent back in time experience. I love history and this really helps solidify history in Edmonton. Next time I would like to experience staying at the hotel. I would really like to see more costume characters, making of bread in the old oven; some of the ambiance was lost by taking this away.

Fort Edmonton park is a great introduction to the history around Edmonton. It is worth getting a yearly pass with attractions. Our grandchildren love the ferris wheel', carousel, and the puppet theatre. The steam train, wagon rides, and traveling on the trams visiting all the areas of the park. Afternoon tea is awesome.
