The site is very interesting and enjoyable. I was able to move around at my own pace plus got to see a demo of the firing of a old rifle that was not a rifle.

The fort and tour were very interesting. The presentation was well organized and easy to follow. It is also free. You can see it adequately in about an hour.

We were in NOTL and stopped by Fort George by chance. Very interesting, free and informative. We had a wonderful presentation of musket firing by a very nice and knowledgeable young man. He actually made the visit for us.

Grateful that you got your answer. Since it it Canada's 150th Anniversary, National Parks are, or at least were, giving free admission, just pay for parking. ENJOY!

My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls... More
