We had often said we would visit Fort George, and finally made it there. We loved everything about it. It was clean, the staff very knowledgeable, and friendly. We got there just in time for a talk about the war. Lots we didn't know, so that was very interesting. Then it was time for the demonstration of the firing of the muskets. Into the cook house for a sample of cookies baked over the fire. Then the fife and drum, wonderful! We enjoyed just walking around the grounds, realizing the importance of this fort. Oh yes, some time spent in the gift shop, of course. It was a couple of hours well spent, and we won't wait so long until we do it again.

Enjoyed touring the fort especially seeing the college students dress in period clothing demonstrating what life was like 200 years ago. Soldiers training and parading was a particular favorite. Parking is free, as you receive a full discount on your parking fee when you enter the fort. Coupons can save you another $2. Downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake is within easy walking to shop, eat or have a pint at a pub.

Easy to go around and learn alot following the practical pamphlet. We loved the demonstrations done by the employees ( gun shooting, music etc.)

I really enjoyed the chance to see what it was like for the troops serving within a military outpost during a period of our joint British/Canadian past. The fort has been rebuilt to the almost exact design of the original and the staff enacting the many roles of the time certainly knew their facts. Forget what Hollywood and "The Star Spangled Banner" suggests about the war and emerse yourself in the reality of the time.

The young people who work there--as soldiers and interpreters are very helpful and friendly. We particularly liked the display of dinnerware unearthed near the officers' mess.
