This attraction is a must see for the history buffs out there. It is well worth a drive to Amherstburg to learn about this heritage. The river is a bonus and we always watch the Canada Day Fireworks here every year. A great family outing for those interested in teaching children about these times.
This museum is very well kept , everyone you encounter is very knowledgable . I like the old costumes to bring back the ambiance of the history . The grounds are well kept and maintained . The buildings are well kept with many historical objects to admire . Worth going and spending time .

Located in beautiful Amherstburg Ontario, the Park offers the usual War of 1812 Historical background of the surrounding area. So far, all of the sites we have visited in Ontario (HMCS Haida and Fort... 更多
We were there for the musket demonstration -- fascinating. Kid friendly. The hardships that these soldiers endured was unbelievable. Eye opening for sure. Beautiful location and well laid out for a small fort.
