It was the Fort where French and British occupied during the colonial era and the place is very beautiful impersonate soldiers(not real) will demonstrate their weaponry skills and you have the opportunity to take pictures with them as a remembrance.

In the park I would think so. I didn't see any near the museum, but as others have mentioned, it's best to contact them. I can't imagine a problem if the dog is not loode.
