“Worth re-visiting again and again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I haven't been to the Fort since I was 10 years old! I finally made the trip yesterday! What a valuable jewel for the community. They have really preserved the Fort and have a lot of activities for adults and kids alike!

“Fort Niagra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Not far from the falls is a amazing part of history, Fort Niagra. It is a must see for history buffs or for any one that enjoys a amazing view of the water. It was a beautiful walk through the fort with lots to see around every turn.

“Great place for history buffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Traveling with a husband and son who are military history buffs, of course we went there. It was interesting to learn how it changed hands from French to British to U.S. So well-presevered, we could even go down into the underground bunkers, as well as all three floors of the French Castle. Because of that, there are a lot of steps. An older couple struggled a bit with the steps, and the lady commented to me that she was going to have to revise her bucket list when she got home. Wear comfortable shoes! We stayed longer than we intended.

“Historical preservation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

They've done such a great job of preserving this site, it's a must- see to those visiting the falls area. There are so many preserved artifacts, coupled with the presentations given by the period-clad staff, it's easy to envision what life was like when the fort was an integral part of our history.

You can feel a part of history here! Great tour, and we got to see a shooting demonstration. And a great view- so clear today we could see the Toronto skyline!
