Beautiful site and display of early Acadian buildings. Be sure to talk with a guide/volunteer to get the best history of the area.

Interesting and informative. You can help them make roof shingles in the centre of the fort. Beautiful views as well.

We loved the Fort, it was fun to look back in time. It made for a nice afternoon and we took some great photos.

“Nice Little Site Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

When you are in Annapolis Royal you should see also Port Royal, its close by (a 10 minutes drive from the city center) and located in nice setting. Its surprisingly small but worth a visit on a sunny day. You can take nice fotos and imagine how people lived when the Fort was working.
