Good source for early local history

Lots of displays and artifacts on early western history of the late 1800s and the arrival of the NWMP. many native artifacts as well as an interesting display of antique guns.

I was not at all impressed with the tour given to the kindergarten class this year. Our guide was clearly not engaged with her job and did not appreciate the significance of it. Many repairs to the fort were obviously not period correct and made no effort to appear that way. Hopefully the expected changes in 2016 will correct these... More

I am not sure when the find new operators to run the Fort, but they lost a well trained group, the Fort Whoop-up Interpretive Society, along with the knowledge of senior historians. The Society, not the city owned over 10,000 artifacts and now they are gone, the Fort is left with only 500. At this time the certainty of the... More

This is the largest Japanese Garden outside of Japan and it is simply outstanding. It is always worth a visit and a walk in the park

Attended a group Christmas party at the Fort. Wonderful time for all ages. Blazing fire in the centre of the outdoor area, singing carols. Displays in the saloon and another area with fire-burning stoves to keep us toasty. Service area for hot chocolate and donuts. Horse-drawn wagon rides. What a great way to use the summer attraction in the winter.... More

We really enjoyed the fort room and the tutorial that explained the room and the lifestyle back then. Amazing details and antiques to make it come to life for us.

I didn't realize that this wasn't the real fort. That wouldn't matter much but this recreation was too cartoony for my taste. I didn't learn very much.

We went on a beautiful fall afternoon, and we were the only ones there, had the place to ourselves, so we could go through at our leisure. This fort is a replica of the original Fort that was more out of town and was in disrepair. From the 23 minute video, to all the artifacts to peruse it was a... More

It's intresting to find out how the fort came to be, the surrounding area is a natural landscape.plenty of parking but not worth the admission fee.
