That area of Niagara had changed "ownership" a number of times. Native, British, American, British again and Canadian independent. Musket firings keep the kids happy and good displays telll the story in situ.

just happened to stop here and a war reenactment was going on. What a unique experience. Wrist bands gets you into the fort. Take a step back in history! I loved the gift shop too!

We arrived late in the afternoon, so probably spent about 90 minutes here until it closed. Very interesting to learn a little of the struggle of the early 1800's. It reminded us very much of Australian reproductions of towns/forts at the same time (without the...More

Although the original fort was mostly destroyed in the War of 1812, it was painstakingly put back together and many original artifacts are on display. It really looks like it must have when it was built. It was interesting to me, as a citizen of...More

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
