The history of the fort is very interesting and educational. We watched the musket demonstration which was fun but makes you realize what pressure the soldiers were under during war. There are several buildings to wander through and the view from the fort is amazing....More

We expected to spend an hour at most but hadn't even seen the whole site after 2 hours! It's a good mix of heritage buildings, exhibits and re-enactments. A key place in the War of 1812 and one of Canada's oldest military sites. The exhibits...More

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
