this historic fort is worth a visit if you are in the area. Very nicely kept up and a nice tour . They dress in period clothing which is fun to see as well.

We went to Fort George for a Halloween Ghost Tour. This is a historical ghost tour not the kind people jump out at you. The tour guide Kyle Upton is great! I have been during the day before and if you are a history buff this place is for you.

We enjoy our visit each year. Have attended the Steampunk festival for a few years there. The reenactments in the summer are also terrific especially if you have never attended.

We have gone to Fort George numerous times over many years and have always found the staff friendly and knowledgble. The events they hold over the summer are highly recommended.

We came with young children and they enjoyed the activities of the park. They dressed up like old time soldiers and had fun. Afterwards we took a walk by the Niagara River and enjoyed the beauty of nature and the great weather.

Excellent place to visit while in Niagara. Open all year around (only week-ends in the winter) there is lots to see and do . In the summer it is full of soldiers dressed in period uniforms who march in squadrons and offer musket firing demonstrations and so much more. A must see for history lovers. Great store on site- lots... More

As a history buff, Fort George is a must see. My wife and I go every July 1 with friends for the Canada Day celebrations and we're rarely disappointed.
