Port-Royal National Historic Site


Follow this young family in their adventures at Port-Royal and Fort Anne National Historic Sites as they experience and discover the incredible stories of Canada’s past in beautiful Annapolis Royal. Located within close proximity to each other, both sites offer a ton of great activities for visitors of all ages to enjoy. This video features but a fraction of them.

At Port-Royal, step into the unique environment of a reconstructed early 17th century French colony, interacting with costumed interpreters who answer questions and point out details about construction techniques and the daily lives and skills of the Habitation’s residents. In this unique place carved out of the wilderness, learn about the beginnings of European colonization and settlement, and the French settlers’ amiable, important relationship with the Mi'kmaq people.
