“Fort”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Such a very clean park, great for families. Could use more narrators for the various buildings but the demonstrations are great. Cover the ears of little ones! Have some $ on hand, cute gift shop!

“opened the kids eyes”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

we weren't quite sure how our 10 and 13 year old would react going back in time, But as we went from one old home to another we saw the kids get more and more interested asking questions and really enjoying themselves ( we enjoyed as well)

“What a sight to see and experience!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The history is just amazing and see and touch these things that have been around a looong time is just so cool. If you visit Mackinac Island you would be nuts if you didn't take a couple hours or so to visit this fort that was built to protect the island. This fort is just filled with historical fact and even the little show they put on is pretty cool. A Must Place to visit!
