Fort Henry is both a museum and a spectacular historic site. Once inside the fortification's wooden gates visitors enter a marvellous reproduction of 19th century military life. The site offers guided tours, scenic views, and musical performances from a military band and military and marching demonstrations by the Fort Henry Guard. The Fort also plays host to numerous special ceremonies and events throughout the tourist season, so don't be surprised if you get a little unforeseen bonus during your visit.
Payment Accepted:
Getting there:
From Highway 401, take Exit 623 (County Road 15) south to the end and turn right on County Road 2. A left turn at the next traffic lights puts you at the Fort's information centre. As you continue up the hill towards the Fort, you will notice the buildings of the Royal Military College to your right, on the opposite bank of Navy Bay.

This is a great place to spend the afternoon. There is lots to see and do. Make sure you see one of the presentations.

They put on a really good show. Try and make it for the Sunset Ceremonies on Wednesdays every week of the summer - really cool. Also a nice place for a walk in the summer, or some sledding in the winter!

Kingston, Ontario, Canada the home of RMC, CFSCE, and now the 21 EW Regiment. (And BTW, it is where Fort Henry, a tourist attraction that as nothing to do with the CF, thank God...)

The forts across Ontario are always interesting, if you are intrigued by history. The live musket demonstration is a must see and be sure to take the guided tour.
