We toured southern Alberta instead of burning our dirty fossil fuels in BC this year, and this was a wonderful stop. We had three g kids under twelve and they thoroughly enjoyed the fort as well as the museum displays. They had learned much about our indigenous peoples at school and this was a great fit. The old buildings provided real proof of our tales of the olden days. This fort is well kept, staff were friendly, entry price was reasonable, and there was an awesome ice cream spot right next door. Very nice two hour stop.

An informative museum with lots of exhibits and old buildings to wander around. The musical ride is pretty good and you are permitted to visit the horses in the stables. Worth a visit.

My family and I spent several hours enjoying the many displays both inside and outside in the compound. Especially enjoyed the cadets and the musical ride. Very good displays throughout. Spent several hours here as there is so much to see. A special thank s to the cadets for a great performance. A wonderful place to visit and see our history.
