Visiting Old Fort Niagara was a highlight of our trip. Seeing the period costumed actors takes you back in time and allows you to experience that time in history. You can wonder the fort at your own time and pace. The museum has fantastic artifacts...More

I am kind of worn out from visiting so many forts over the past few years while on vacation as they mostly all look the same. The history of this fort is what made it interesting.

It was the Fort where French and British occupied during the colonial era and the place is very beautiful impersonate soldiers(not real) will demonstrate their weaponry skills and you have the opportunity to take pictures with them as a remembrance.

In the park I would think so. I didn't see any near the museum, but as others have mentioned, it's best to contact them. I can't imagine a problem if the dog is not loode.
