The main building has lots of history and artifacts. Very interesting. The fort outside is a nice place for kids. We wanted to enjoy the trails as well and also see the buffaloes but the weather didn't cooperate. Maybe next time.
it's a nice place , they do a puppet show to let you know the history of the place. we've done a nice hiking for a couple of hours. and we've visited the point of interest locations where you can listen and watch Metis dances and local old workstation
I was expecting a lot more having been to several great "Fort Sights" like Fort Langley and Fort Steele in BC. I guess they are trying to make a lot from nothing so to speak. Its worth a short visit if you are here but don't go out of your way.

Very cool place to stop in at! We walked the interpreted walking path along the North Saskatchewan river! They have buffalo on site the we viewed from a distance.

Great break from a paddle on the North Saskatchewan River. Leave your boats a access the Nat. Historic site. A great little gem of an authentic trading post. Real archeological digs short and informative awareness displays and when in site a terrific viewing platform of the buffalo paddock. Interpreters are well informed and keen to share their knowledge.
Enjoyed hiking through areas near the river where there had been fur trading forts. Nice presentations on the way of life and times during the fur trade. Accomodations for camping are available. Allow a couple of hours to take all the trails.
The front desk at the Hotel recommended this place to visit and we were not disappointed. We learned a great deal about the origins of the town and the first Trading Posts. As well it was a pleasant walk along the North Saskatchewan River. Worth the visit.
