My family and I stopped by for the afternoon. It was very cold, and there were only a few buildings open to go inside. There was one “cafe” open for food and beverages, but it was really just a table set up. There were a few workers, but none engaged with us as we walked through. The history here is fascinating, and the buildings are in good shape. I felt let down by the lack of interaction, or things of interest, besides sight seeing. The prices were fair. To be honest, too fair, they should increase them so they could brainstorm and put in place some new ideas.

I loved Louisbourg as a child and was excited to take my son here. I was worried that there would not be a lot to see with Covid restrictions. But there was still lots to do and see. The period actors are very knowledgeable and can answer most questions or will find out the answer for you. It’s a beautiful place with ocean almost surrounding it. So many photos opportunities with the lighthouse and crashing waves in the background. This piece of Nova Scotia history really should be a must see if you visit Nova Scotia or if you are from here. I would go again and again. You could easily spend the whole day here and grab a bottle of Fortress Rum on the way out!

One of the most interesting and informational experiences I have ever had. All of the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and extremely friendly. We were there during Covid19 so a lot of exhibits were not open for exploration, but we still made an entire day of exploring the things which we could. I would highly reccomend everyone to visit this site and experience the history of it all. It feels like you stepped into another world 300yrs ago. I will definitely make the trek back and plan for 2days once everything is back and running at full capacity.

Anytime you visit Nova Scotia, The Fortress of Louisburg is must visited place. One of the beautiful and informative Historical site. However, It is a little bit out of track and we visited during off season too, but it was absolutely worth to travel. I visit their with my friends and it becomes one of the memorable trip of my life.I really appreciate their well managed parking space. I don't knew the difference between fort and fortress before this visit. Whole environment of the fort took you back in past time. Covering with snow made it more beautyful. This was located in the heart of the nature, which made it more worthwhile. If you have time, try to visit it during summer it will look more beautiful and there would be food outlets and amenities which makes the trip more enjoyable. And you can also visit the light house which is located not so far.
