Take a walk back through history and experience what it was like to live back in time. A very well preserved facility with period actors bringing it to life.

This was a fascinating place to visit but probably very much more interesting for those with an interest in BC's political history. It only scored 'average' to us because we'd just visited Barkerville a few days before, which sets a high standard.

An interesting place which showed what life would have been like in the early 1800s for traders. Great for children and adults alike as you can handle the props. Some of the buildings are original, the rest e.g. palisade have been reconstructed. There are talks...More

The USA and Canada do not have the same sort of history as Europe and therefore judging this as an historical attraction is difficult. It was good to see how life was lived when the Fort was built but there could have been more information...More

Hi, We will have two grandchildren ages 5 and 7 and would like to rent one of the oTentik for two nights in July. Currently all sites are available. Any thoughts on which one would be the best?
