Nicely rebuilt and preserved fort from the War of 1812 period. Good history, fun tour, inexpensive, great views of the Niagara River, musket demonstrations!

We enjoyed our visit to Fort George. The docent and the musket demonstration were very good. It was interesting to learn about the people who lived and served at the fort.

A lot of reading! Text book pages on the walls. It would have been better if we had more interaction with the story tellers or even little videos that played with characters telling a story. There were two characters that we did catch and they...More

We spent a very enjoyable few hours looking around the fort and watching some of the reenactments as well as reading all about the history. We thought the whole experience is superbly managed and well run. Definitely recommended.

My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls... More
