“The war of 1812 from a Canadian perspective”

Ever wondered about the war of 1812 - it's all documented here from a Canadian perspective. Go to the Monroe, MI (off I-75) national memorial or Fort Miegs (Perrysburg, Ohio) for an American perspective. This is a great museum.

Visited Fort Malden during Roots to Boots festival and it was incredible felt like you were back in the early 1800's, very educational and fun. Watched the musical entertainment and enjoyed activities and crafts they offered. Had actors in period costumes and had camps set out in what would have been living arrangements in 1812. Very well put together and organized.

Fort Malden is a beautiful and quiet waterfront park in Amherstburg. It is possible to visit the little museum and the barracks for a fee. It is small and can be done in one or two hours, depending on how long you spend at the exhibitions. Kids will appreciate the cannons strewn about the property.

I went before the canadian schools let out for the summer and there was not much happening. The fort area is relatively small with only a couple of buldings that you can see. I understand that during the summer there are more costumed characters walking around.

The main buiding has a small museum and child's area that gives the history of the area.
