Great place to stop. The actors there were awesome and acting their parts. They were very interactive and provided great information. Great stop. The train ride was fun and interesting.

Fort Steel Heritage Town is a great walk through time. The live action actors represented a good cross section of town life 100 plus years ago. In terms of buildings, they are well kept but need TLC. Several buildings have numerous nails sticking out that...More

Very friendly staff, if you saw them. In the past visits the townspeople would interact with visitors. This time, we didn’t see anyone, and we were there for 5 hours. That was the highlight of our trip this time. Must have been a grumpy staff...More

We only had 90 minutes for our visit to Fort Steele - it would have been very easy to spend all day there! The reconstructed and relocated buildings and their contents are excellent - to a Brit, it's like a western Canada version of the...More

We arrived just after the town opened so there was no steam train for over an hour. There were 2 elderly seniors in our group who loved seeing the old-timey things, but the walking involved and uneven terrain was just too much for them. We...More

There are wooden boardwalks that are ramped for access to the buildings as well as a ramp up to the train. In places where there are no boardwalks the roads are very well maintained. Shouldn't be a problem.
