Fort Carlton Provincial Historic Park
Four of us went to this site on a weekday and we were very glad we did. The fort is important in Canadian history and they have renovated some of the buildings and filled them with fascinating objects, including many...More
We visited Fort Carlton as part of our summer family trip. We got a guided tour of the buildings which was interesting, but the kids weren't kept interested as it's not very hands on. There were no activities like in other reviews such as making...More

I think your best bet is to go on the Park's website. I can't give definite answers to most of your questions. I believe the entrance fee was $10 CAD per adult, and kids under something like 12 were free. But I'm not sure. The guided tour was included with the entrance fee, to the best of my recollection.
