Wonderful place to visit with so much history to share. Both young and old visitors love checking out all of the exhibits and enjoying the beautiful grounds surrounding the fort.

I have visited this historic site hundreds of times going back over 65 years to when I was a young lad who used to join dozens of others to toboggan on the slopes of the fortification. I would really prefer the old exhibits rather than the modernized displays that they have now since it takes away from the original feel. Enjoy coming here on the grounds for the various festivals related to the town of Amherstburg. You have got to visit this place.

The town of Amherstburg is a little gem. Very quaint and charming. Amherstburg is also the home to Fort Malden where part of the war of 1812 was fought. As others have pointed out, the Fort is situated on the lovely Detroit River just south of Windsor. It is an idyllic setting. When we were there, we witnessed several re-enactments of life in the early 1800's . We were impressed with the staff who showed us how the Fort operated in these years. The buildings have been restored and they have many original pieces of equipment. Also check out the wineries in the area.

A very worthwhile piece of our past. The grounds are well kept. The view along the river are second to none. To realize this area was so vital to our nation's past is unreal. Amherstburg's small town appeal is very real. Essex county offers various attractions for one and all. Would recommend this area anyone.

It's nice to walk along the waterside, but other than that its pretty uneventful. I suppose a cute place to take kids, but not really worth the drive from Windsor. A small museum and a few history reenactments. If you want a exciting reenactment festival go to the Renaissance festival in Holly Mi, or the River of Time in Bay City, Mi. If you do go to Amherestburg, check out Amherest pub, very cool!!
