A great place to stop along the Niagra Parkway and visit the Fort. Unfortunately for us we were visiting at a time of year when the Fort was closed (early April) but that does not stop you walking around and enjoying the space and the monument. A must return to especially when they have the re-enactments. Plenty of places to... More

Afterwards, visitor can go into the museum and browse around. You can spend at least two hours... More

We take you on a tour around the Oldfort and tell ghost stories and stories of historical significance at night by light of a lantern. They mixed in some history that... More

Drove to Ft. Erie, Canada to see Niagara Falls from the Canadian side, excellent view, worth the quick trip across the border to see the falls from that side.

I had no expectation for this place, as I am not much up on my Canadian war history. My partner was interested, so we agreed to check it out. We took the guided tour (recommended) and had a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic history major from Brock University leading our tour. It was end of season and there were only two of... More
