The War of 1812 and the Rebellions of 1838 leap off pages of history books at Fort Malden, where you can tour an authentic fort, learn to fire a musket, mortar or cannon, and enjoy an enlisted man’s lunch at the Soldier’s Cookhouse.  


  • ​Get a bang out of Fort Malden!

    Imagine the life of a British soldier as you experience an exciting demonstration of the blast of a musket on the Parade Square at Fort Malden National Historic Site near Amherstburg, Ontario.

  • ​Chow down at Fort Malden

    Dig into a bowl of hearty beef stew with a big chunk of fresh bread, just like the soldiers of Fort Malden did during the Rebellions of 1838. It’s a delicious way to learn in the authentic Soldier’s Cookhouse.
