Of course, a town as rich in heritage as Niagara on the Lake abounds in historic museums. Just one block from Lyons House Bed and Breakfast is the Niagara Historical Society Museum.

While in Queenston, be sure to visit the Laura Secord Homestead and homage to Ms. Secord, whose bravery changed the course of the 1812 War. .brradius{border-radius:3px; -moz-border-radius:3px; -ms-border-radius:3px; -o-border-radius:3px; -webkit-border-radius:3px} Fort George National Historic Site of Canada

Here, history is alive. A visit to the site allows you not only to hear about history, but to actually experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a garrison in the early 19th century. You can watch soldiers perform drill or listen to the music of the fife and drum corps as both prepare for battle on the Niagara frontier. Inside Fort George your pace and your pulse will quicken, as you become caught up in the atmosphere of anxious preparations for war. Time has stalled here. It is the eve of the War of 1812, and the British Army still occupies the Fort.

Fort George is the focus of the interpretation programme for visitors to the Niagara Complex. Each summer, staff in period uniform conduct activities typical of the garrison prior to the war.

Open April 1-Oct 31 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
