“Excellent history lesson!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We have visited Ft. Edmonton many times with seniors and with grandchildren. All love it! The attraction follows Edmonton's history from early Fort days up to 1905 -- with a street for each time period. The guides, in costume, in each area are well trained and knowledgeable. You can meet a fur trader (voyageur) packing furs, a First Nations person sewing beads, the first female policeman in Alberta, or a young man living in a tent city. The new film at the Capitol Theatre is excellent too.

“really enjoyed the history of Edmonton.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The staff were excellent. I learned a lot about Edmonton. We didn't have children with us but they had lots of things for kids to do. I would have liked a sit down restaurant. The hotel on 1920 street was closed for an event.

“great historic place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Many different activities happening during the weekends, but not so much during the week.
Best to visit Sat. and Sun. Take the train, ride the street cars, visit the old stores, see the old theatre, ride horse-drwan carts...

“A great reminder of our past”

Whether as a family or on a school field trip, the Fort continues to offer a fabulous experience. The Lord Selkirk Hotel is quant and the staff are attentive and professional.
