Good place to visit in relation to the history of early B.C. and the exploration of Western Canada and the coastline. Well maintained and interesting.

Their is lots to do and see at the fort, when we were there they had a blacksmith demonstration as well as people dressed in the time period cloths that explained what it was like back 150 years ago. Very informative.

Our visit was really worth our travel to this place. It was educational and fun for the whole family. It's like going back in time. The staff in their costumes are well versed with their roles. And the entrance fee and really affordable.
