Fort Henry National Historic Site of Canada, an authentic 19th century British military fortress, invites your group to experience Ontario's only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Majestic Fort Henry is set high above the Kingston harbour on Lake Ontario, the gateway to the St. Lawrence River, and the Rideau Canal.
Start your visit at the new Fort Henry Discovery Centre-- a 10,000 sq. ft. high tech facility featuring interactive experience that shares stories not told inside the walls of the Fort. Meet historic characters who shaped the history of Canada, hear about military strategies and experience guest-triggered interactive exhibits that will entertain and educate visitors.
The Discovery Centre also features a 200 seat meeting/banquet hall to host your group or conference.
As your guests enter the citadel, they will experience life set in the year of Canada's Confederation, 1867. Set your watch by our Noon Gun while men and women interpret their daily chores of the era. See the Fort Henry Guard perform military music, drill and artillery practices during the day and in grand style every Wednesday evening in July and August at the World Heritage Sunset Ceremonies.
