Enjoyed viewing the bakery, school and the soldiers in their dated attire. Provided a realistic idea of what life was like during that time. Fort Henry can be hot during summer day's so bring extra water and appropriate clothing/hats. This can also be a long day for young children. Ideal for teenagers who enjoy history and people curious about life... More

Although we have been to the Fort many times, it was wonderful to see Fort Henry through the eyes of our American friends.

WOW! What an experience! We will definitely go back again next year if they stage it. Truly loved the special effects and the animals that morphed onto the walls of the old fort. The fire pits were great and when enough people congregated around the big ones animals appeared once again on the walls but in different outlines. Too cool!... More

It is not about a history lesson, more history wrapped in truly unique and entertaining evening. Of course listening to cannons fire and hearing A true Fife and Drum band always helps

The Lumina Borealis was an amazing experience! The light display, the story, and the whole experience was fantastic! At one point I was so overcome with its beauty that I teared up a little. I should have researched it further prior to the visit because had I known it was all outdoors, we would have worn proper outdoor winter attire... More

Really enjoyed this attraction, very imaginative. Although it was a cold night the displays were easy to navigate. The fire pits offered a chance to warm our hands a bit. The animations and mystic music created an almost spiritual experience.
