Arrived early and found that there were only a handful of people witnessing the flag parade and salute by soldiers in period costume. Following that there were quite a few demonstrations of musket fire and period bread baking. Even when we left after spending a good few hours wandering around all the buildings and exhibits the numbers were still low... More

Knowledgeable and helpful guides, interesting exhibits, and active demonstrations. As someone from the US it is good to hear about battles from the Canadian perspective. We have been to the fort several times in all four seasons and we learn something new each time. My daughter loves visiting the fort.

A very neat place to get some local Canadian history. There is a fee to enter, which is not worth it. Join a tour if you can - they run them often and do a great job of giving background information of the buildings /way of life in the fort.

Fascinating place with a great history. Lovely acreage surrounding the fort -- even if you don't go into the fort itself, you will enjoy it. Plenty of parking. And not crowded at all in the winter.

Went on one of the hottest, driest days of the year. Still a great trip though. I especially enjoyed the re-enactments of the bayonet firing. Had some interesting discussions with various characters in period costume scattered about the site. The actors are very willing to discuss the history of the fort and let you know details of how life was... More

Historic Fort George was closed when we got there, but one of the park rangers invited us to come in and look around. We listened to a bit of the guided tour for another group and were very impressed with the detail of the reproductions for life in and around the fort during the War of 1812. It is an... More

The grounds are beautiful. The different exhibits that they have are very interesting. If in this area this is a place that must be visited.
