Trip Planner: Canada / Nova Scotia / Southwest Nova Scotia / Annapolis Royal / Fort Anne National Historic Site
Explore Fort Anne National Historic Site, a culturally significant site conquered by many nations in the past. The fort was originally built by the Scots in 1629 and later further developed by the French in 1643. Visit 18th- and 19th-century buildings that today house various museums outlining the fort's history and showcasing the daily lifestyle of the soldiers. Try on costumes from the Acadian period, either a French or British military uniform. The kids can take part in the “Xplorers” program, which incorporates fun activities while exploring the fort and learning of its history. Marvel at the Fort Anne Heritage Tapestry, a colorful and intricate piece depicting 400 years of the site's history.

What an amazing piece of history and great place to stop and take in the views. So many historical pieces to see, great convenient parking. If you like places of importance that helped shape the local area this is definitely a place to visit. Convenient to access all the amenities of Annapolis Royal.
Of all the fort buildings only the garrisons quarters now stand which is a museum. Entrance fee is reasonable ($4 odd). Expect to spend about 45 min to an hour if you read everything. Outside the grounds are very scenic. Great place to watch the tides come in and out.
