Gives a real insight into the war of 1812, and the conditions experienced by the soldiers involved. Informative, well-restored.

Loved to tour the grounds, we caught up with a tour that had started about 15 minutes prior and wish we caught the whole thing. Will go back for sure.

A wonderful historical site which was home to the war of 1812 complete with a fife and drum corps and a muscat loading and shooting demonstration. Really good entrance fees where all can afford. Parking is paid for if you bring your parking receipt.

Great review of a historic location. We were there in a light rain just after opening, so no crowds. We ran into a small group who were being shown the operations of an old musket. This guy was GOOD in that he was a historian...More

Found this historic site when we were visiting Niagara on the Lake. Interesting stuff at the fort but what really sold it was the workers and their passion for giving the tours. Definitely worth the couple hour visit. Great town to walk through after the...More

We visited Fort George as a part of the Ghost Tour. It was a bit chilly, but we bundled up and prepped for the cold. It was nice that a good portion of the tour was inside the buildings of the fort. Although not everyone...More

Take a tour for the best overview of the history of this area. Excellent tour guides provided a real sense of how the fort operated day-to-day. The buildings included furnishings. The musket demonstration was informative. Great gift shop.

This is a great place for a visit. Docents dressed in British Army uniform lead the guided trip and it all finishes off with a demonstration of firing a musket. You can also wander around on your own.

We had some exceptional guides here that told amazing stories. Did you know that the soldiers were checked to see that they were swallowing their daily ration of ale because what some did was spit it out and collect it to sell to others. Or...More

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
