Really enjoyed our morning at Fort George, even In the rain! The musket demonstration was very well done with some funnies added in to keep your attention. If you enjoy history, definately recommend a stop here

Outstanding. A bit of history for all ages. Educational as well as fun. Buildings recreated with historic accuracy. Comparable to Old Fort Niagara just across the river, although unlike Ft Niagara, the only original building still standing is the gunpowder magazine. One can imagine the...More

just happened to stop here and a war reenactment was going on. What a unique experience. Wrist bands gets you into the fort. Take a step back in history! I loved the gift shop too!

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
