The fort itself is a gem; it's well kept up and full of interesting historical attractions. It's located right on Lake Ontario; we could see Toronto across the lake that day, which was cool. The Fort is an easy walking tour, with plenty to see. The 10 minute movie they show at the beginning details the history of the area. Well worth the visit.

It's worth the trip/detour to visit Old Fort Niagara when in the Niagara Falls area. The fort is in great shape and offers a fascinating look at the history of the place. A beautiful location. Well worth the price of admission.

spent an enjoyable few hours at the fort - lots to see in the museum and in the the fort. A great insight into the history of the area. Loved the re-enactments and the musket firing display.

The castle is the oldest building remaining on the great lakes. So much important history is relived here. Easy to spend at least 2 or 3 hours at the fort.

The fort was originally built by the French. It was taken by the British in the French and Indian war. Many original structures an don't rebuilt ones. Active fort until 1920.
