Old Fort Erie has greatly improved the visitor experience with a new museum and visitor center and greater efforts to make the site appear as it would have during the War of 1812.

Being the smallest fort we have visited we were surprised by the vast knowledge that each participant has! We learned more at this fort, than the other two we've been to. We suggest you visit it! You will not be disappointed.

It was a really fun experience. I love how they added so much new things to the Fort and upscaled the tourist shop!
