This fort was an interesting place to learn about the history of the area and the war of 1812. Both my wife and I enjoyed it and seeing the staff dressed in clothing of that era.

I went with a friend and we both had a great time. A lot of rich history, which is well preserved. Enjoyed walking through the tunnel and up to the tower.

Ultimately not what we thought it would be, but interesting. I wouldn't make it a destination, but if you are interested in history, a good spot for a short visit.

We had been to Fort Niagra on the US side so this was a interesting comparison. It was also interesting did get a different perspective on the War of 1812. Saw a live demonstration of a Musket being fired. The fastest of it's period. 15...More
