This fort had a role in the War of 1812 in that it was instrumental in repelling American attempts to invade Canada. There are several buildings to walk through and employees inside are dressed in British army uniforms and other clothing worn during that era. They explain what various parts of the fort were used for and answer questions from... 更多
This fort gives the visitor a good look at the life of a soldier in the 18th century. Living history exhibits make it real. The town is also worth visiting. A very beautiful area.

The explanations given for... 更多
We have visited Fort George at least 10 times over the past few years and love coming back. Our kids (10, 8, and 5) love going to play the olden time games, dress as soldiers, and see the musket shooting at 4pm. The history and exhibits are extremely well done, and there's enough to see to keep us coming back... 更多
