A small historic site... with lots of detail. Pretty ideal for history buffs who are travelling with others without the same interests! Really nice people at the site help explain things and there is a small "museum" to explain more about martello towers around the world. Very close to the "Reversing Falls."

Loved the new visitors center it really added to the site and was able to offer a deeper view into the story of Martello Tower.

The Carleton Martello Tower is well worth an hour or so of your time in Saint John. The guide in the tower was very well versed in the history of the tower, and general history of the area. He answered our questions in detail, without being too chatty. Regretfully, we visited on a misty, foggy day, and the view from the tower went no further than 2 blocks away. However, on a clear day, the view should be grand.

I like to explore historical places and the tower was a nice place to see. Unfortunately a fog had rolled in - rather typical of St. John - but nevertheless it was interesting to learn about the history of the tower, see the short film and tour the museum.
