This site is a restoration of the fort.
There are guided tours and demonstrations of musket firing, cannon and others.
The staff is very enthusiastic and are very interested in showing the visitors all that is available.
They are dressed in costumes which they explain.
There could be more details on site, with signs in the rooms and the map given could be modernized.
It was worth the visit

The folks working at Ft Erie were very well informed and showed great enthusiasm in their work. Surely this should be the norm but it isn't always. The condition of the fort was excellent and the demonstrations were excellent. You always see musket and cannon demos but never mortar demos. Although Ft Erie is no where near the size and sophistication of colonial Williamsburg in Virginia it is a close second. Lastly, the support facilities (restrooms, picnic area, etc..) were in excellent condition and very clean.

We stopped in during the reenactment of the war of 1812. Interesting history to the fort. Takes about an hour or so to walk through it and all.
