Parks staff put on a wonderful tour of the Fort. Many interesting insights into the history of the Fort and life at the time, particularly the difficult life of a soldier. The musket firing demonstration was most interesting. Well worth the visit.

Visited in the Fall when it was not too busy. It is a very interesting re-creation of any important event in our history. The period actors were exceptional.

Good review of the history by the tour guide though not as entertaining as it was made out to be. Musket demo was good! I would not recommend if you have kids under 5!

This fort has been carefully restored to its early 1800s appearance. I knew very little about the war of 1812 but came away with a craving to learn more! Our two guides were dressed in historic military uniforms and were extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They...More

I always enjoy forts and this was no exception. We enjoyed learning about the Canadian history and loved the musket demonstration. We stopped by while on our "eskoots" (check them out!) and had a very pleasant walk around.

This is a small fort compared to some others that we have seen. We enjoyed the tour. The tour guides are very enthusiastic.

Fort George was the scene of several battles during the War of 1812. Our tour guide was extremely informative about the history & the soldiers life in that time period. We were given a detailed & informative presentation of how muskets worked at that time.

Special events make it even more fun - check the calendar. Reenactments of battles fought in the war of 1812 are neat. Costumes, muskets, swords, etc. Biking through is neat. Please do try however to keep the cars from parking on the grass. Kills the...More

Enjoyed your post about this Fort. Do you happen to recall how much the admission price was per person? We are 2 of us both over 65 yrs. old. Thanks!

It was free due to the Canada 150 passes. Parking was not being enforced at the time we visited so it was free. We spent two hours there and it was a great visit. Cheers
Is it worth the drive from Niagra Falls if it's going to be dark soon and we don't have much time?

I'm sorry I just saw this question, as my reply is probably after the fact. However, for future reference for other travelers, I would say no, don't pay the entrance fee if you are limited on time. Our family found the... More
