Museum


    

Fort Erie's Museums care for a base of knowledge that belongs to the future; help create a strong and proud community by celebrating our shared heritage; and help satisfy the intellectual needs of the community. 

 

Fort Erie Museum Services operates four sites: the Fort Erie Historical Museum, the Fort Erie Railway Museum, the Battle of Ridgeway Heritage Park, Mewinzha: First Nations Gallery.

The Fort Erie Historical Museum was started by the Bertie Historical Society in 1972. Below is a list of some of the 40-60 yearly projects to represent each of the 50 years the Historical Museum has been open. (Check back for active links.)
