It won't take you longer than an hour or so to get through the visitor centre, little gift shop, all exhibits and the 5 original buildings still standing on this historic site. There isn't a lot to see, but the friendly guides (all decked out...More

Friendly staff. Eager to show and explain. It is not very big but it has good historical items and gives a good background of conflicts between natives and settlers.

Been coming here off and on for years. Good interpretive guides. Don't miss the often- overlooked graves of the Indians hanged after the riel rebellion, located nearby.

Take a self guided tour of the historical buildings or have an interpreter lead you through an hour and a half tour of the park. Educational and well worth the visit.

This is a nice historical location that has been taken care of and maintained. We would recommend the audio tour as well as it just adds to the history of the area.

Saskatchewan is full of national historic sites due to it being a part of the northwest territories in the late 1800's. Unfortunately they did a lot of displacement of First Nations and ran residential schools in the Battlefords. This fort is well worth a visit
