We took the family and grandchildren to Fort George on a beautiful summer day. Staff were dressed in period costumes and were friendly to the children. There is plenty to see and lots of open space too for the kids to run and explore. Depending...More

What a great park to understand British Colonialism and the strategic point the Niagara River played. The park does an excellent job showing the period with reanactors and it’s a great place just to soak in the beautiful area that Niagara on the lake is

We spent a lovely afternoon touring the exhibit and were amazed at how well done it was. This was definitely time we’ll spent, especially if looking for something to do before the wine tours of the day.

Great colonial fort reproduction. Plenty of reenactors to give you an idea of what life was like for the British soldier 220 years ago. We saw the musket and cannon demonstrations which were excellent. Very highly recommended.

The admission charge was very reasonable, and even more so when I think of the quality of the buildings, the locale and especially the people in this interpretation of the War of 1813--NOT 1812 as in the US.

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
