The Halloween day was a very SPOOKTACULAR one. The theater was good. The train raid is so memorable that I feel like keep in going there. The children were the ones who enjoyed it very much. Hope to go there again.

I'm a huge fan of Heritage Park in Calgary so imagine my surprise when someone invited us to Fort Steele and showing up there and its awesome! We were limited for time but the Halloween event was super cool (great haunted house, the feeling should return to my arm sometime next year from my my wife's death grip). Want to... More

Fort Steele is amazing. So much beauty and attention to detail. Have fun throwing your loved ones in the Jail, visit the churches and school house. Admire the beauty of the sinks in the Barber Shop! Pan for Gold. Good food, friendly staff, surrounded by the majestic mountains. Don't miss out!

Much of the town was closed as it is the low season but those that were open were very interesting. There was no entry fee as it was the low season but there was a donation box in the entry. The people working there were extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back when more was open to really... More

Ok it's near the end of the season - town set-up was good with a nice mix of buildings. many were closed and we only saw 3 enactors in 2/1/2 hours. If they are gearing down for the year then there should be a geared down entry fee

We saw this attraction while driving through the area and stopped to visit it. What a great find. It was very interesting seeing all the historical buildings and staff were very friendly. Great shops in some of the buildings. I would definitely return to visit again.

This was a very fun place to visit. We all learned very much about life in the late 1800s and I think even felt what it would have been like. Then actors who portrayed life in Fort Steele did a superb job! Even the school teacher. Even tho I had to wear the dunce hat for not passing fingernail inspection...... More

Went to Fort Steele for a wedding. Beautiful venue, lots of charm. Wear comfortable shoes as the venue is spread out over a large area.

Great visit into a living, working museum. The staff are top notch, and the roles played by each of them is not only educational, but entertaining. The steam train ride, and schoolhouse were the favorites for me. The kids enjoyed those as well as the blacksmith and our visit to the tinnery. A terrific place to spend a day with... More

We spent 1/2 day visiting this re-staged heritage town of Fort Steele. Thoroughly enjoyable and lots of pics taken. The people who work in each of the buildings were polite and some were very informative when questions were asked. I think all ages would enjoy these grounds if you don't mind walking the massive park. I would definitely come back... More
