We visited the old fort after going to Niagara Falls, although not actually that old there was a lot to see, there was a gun show and really great views.

So much history, beautiful views and space to roam for an energetic 2 year old! Definitely recommend going here. We spent about 2 hours here on a cloudy Saturday and learned so much about the fort.

Another Fort and it's good for those who interested to go for the walk inside. Old Fort Niagara situated along the Niagara River at Lake Ontario near Youngstown, New York is the oldest constantly operating military site in North America.

Well, we had to go around two or three times, because it's extremely confusing just how to get here--the park should really have a different name that the fort! Thank goodness there was an attendant before we paid to enter the park; she clarified it...More

In the park I would think so. I didn't see any near the museum, but as others have mentioned, it's best to contact them. I can't imagine a problem if the dog is not loode.
