I had first visited the Fort Whoop-Up site in 2003, but was not very impressed. Since my wife had not yet seen it, we decided on a return visit. I must say that the presentation at the old fort site is much improved. The exhibits weave the complex story of the fort, the Native peoples they traded with, and the early development of what became Lethbridge. The staff were very friendly and the audio presentations (taken from archival entries of visitors to the fort) were excellent. The wagon ride through Indian Battle Park was also enlightening, dealing with the wider range of history and culture in the Lethbridge area. Definitely a worthwhile place to visit.

Family came down before it was taken over by the Gait Museum, there's no where near as much as there was before the takeover. It's missing a lot of the old skins, guns, and other items before the takeover. Not the Gait museum's fault, blame the city of Lethbridge back in 2016 when there was an issue between the city and the Fort Whoop-Up Interpretive Society.

We visited the Fort and were greeted by a friendly staff. The guide, Harrison was exceptionally informative as he described the early years of the Fort. Our questions were answered clearly and we learned so much of the early days of Western Canada. The setting is replicated as close to the original Fort and easy to maneuver. It was an enjoyable few hours that concluded with a wagon ride.
