Owner description: Historic site brings to life that part of Canada's past when conflict between Europe's empire-builders took place on the shore of the Annapolis River.

We spent an hour or so walking around the grounds, taking in the beautiful location. I can see why the 1st settlers decided to stop here! Worth a stop and at least an hour or 2.

Unfortunately we arrived here on a Sunday and the site office is closed on Sundays and Mondays but the site is open to tour around. There were some plaques making the it easy to know what was what. There are a couple seating areas looking over the bay as well.

Well-designed and informative paths and buildings, overlooking the Bay of Fundy gives one an insightful understanding of its history.

Lovely location by the Annapolis River. Self-guided tour in historic building has wonderfully displays with very informative historical aspects of the past, specifically the Acadians.

Despite it being a rainyish day, we really enjoyed walking around Fort Anne. The grounds are very interesting and the self guided tour easy. We spent about an hour walking around as part of an overall walkabout Annapolis Royal. Because we were off season, there weren't the usual costumed soldiers and activities at the Fort but it was still very enjoyable. You really shouldn't miss it if you're visiting the town.
