  • We go to the Pavilion of the quote on Highway 223 to St-Paul of the island to the nuts or taking a boat to get to the quote of the fort located in the middle of the river Richelieu.Une walk about 5 minutes on a path laid out very well to get to the Fort or on-site guides informs us about the history of the Fort. Ideal for family with children or rest areas are located at few places. Costs of about $15.00 by adult I think boat included. Ideal visit to 1 hour from Montreal about to do with the family.

  • Our first visit to Fort Lennox date 1986. So we went back after 31 years. The landscape is beautiful and quiet. The site and buildings are well maintained. The small ferry is nice. The staff is bilingual, courteous and friendly. But is it because in 2017 the site is free or if the Government has made cuts or that visitors are not interested but there is almost no animation. We were disappointed. There was shooting rifle with a commander and a soldier dressed in time. In 1986 it had troops and time exercises. Lot more animation. On that glorious Saturday afternoon of September 2017 the visit was short.

  • Fort Lennox offers a certain interest for history lovers with its reconstructions of barracks, officers mess and its small museum and it is also interesting for families because it was thought to offer games of discoveries, areas of picnic and costumed guides that add to the atmosphere. It's free this year as all sites managed by Parks Canada and allowed entry to those who have not purchased the past. We need to take a small ferry for 10 minutes to get on the island and it runs every 30 minutes.
