“Real History in Vancouver”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

There is much to see in this one area of Vancouver. Officers row, the Fort, and the army quarters that have been abandoned and handed over to the National Park service.

The real attraction in this area is the Fort and Officers row. All within walking distance. Get out and walk, I recommend it.

“good for family”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Will be back. Great for family. Friendly staff & special occasions listed. I enjoyed the historic garden in front of the Old Fort. Laid out very well. Many local agencies have "adopted" some of the buildings for upkeep. Plan to visit the Grant restaurant next time.

“Fabulous Tour”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The Fort Vancouver employees put on a great demonstration in all the buildings. It was like we were back in 1869! Many antiques are distributed around the buildings.
