We knew the fort was not completely open until after Canada Day (not Memorial Day as one reviewer wrote). Canada Day is July 1. We were still not prepared for how little of the fort was open. What we saw was very interesting, and they did not charge the high season entrance fee, but we wished that for the 300th year, there would have been something special. We also wanted to eat in the restaurant that serves period foods in a period setting. When we saw how long the wait was and that there were empty tables, we asked if there was a bus tour coming. We were told,"No." We did eventually get our lunch and watched as a tour group was seated in more than half of the room. When we questioned again, we were told that it was a tour group but not a bus tour. I though this was unnecessarily specific and shows how tour groups are favored. This is clearly an interesting place to visit but I would only recommen the high season.
