Come Visit Us!
Here Is What You'll Experience

 

 

Old Fort Niagara offers you a chance to step back in time to an era when great empires struggled for control of North America.You'll visit original 18th century buildings, enjoy incredible views and take part in exciting living history programs. The Fort's Visitor Center offers you introductory exhibits filled with original artifacts and an award-winning 16-minute orientation film. Don't miss the Fort's original War of 1812 Flag.

Inside the Fort, you'll tour original buildings where Native American, French, British and American soldiers lived and worked from the 18th to the 20th centuries. During the summer months you'll witness musket and artillery firing demonstrations, go on a guided tour, see artisans at work and learn about life on the Niagara Frontier during the 18th and early 19th centuries.

If you visit during one of our special events, you'll meet reenactors who faithfully recreate the lives of past Fort garrisons and depict the struggles that led to the birth of the United States and Canada.  If you visit during the off season, you'll enjoy an orientation video, self-guided tour and hourly musket demonstrations in addition to the many exhibits and period rooms throughout the Fort. Why not make plans to visit the Fort today? You'll experience a unique blend of authenticity and drama that brings history alive.
