Fort Gibraltar’s summer historical interpretive center opened its doors on Tuesday, May 21 and will offer guided tours up until September 1, 2013. Tourists and locals will have the opportunity to meet costumed historical interpreters and learn about the vibrant and fascinating history of the Red River colony!
The Fort Gibraltar summer school program also began on Tuesday! Teachers, come visit Fort Gibraltar and immerse your students in local Manitoban history! From mid-May to the end of June, we invite you to visit the Red River Colony as it was in 1815 at Fort Gibraltar. During their tour, students will make six stops and meet different costumed interpreters who will teach them about the work, the traditions and the pastimes of one of Canada’s folk heroes, the voyageur.
Reserve your tour and discover the fur trade, Fort Gibraltar, the Northwest and Hudson’s Bay companies, the voyageurs, the people of Red River and much more! Click here for more information about the public tours and the school program.
