Get a a bang out of Fort Malden!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fire a Brown Bess musket? Time-travel to 1812 and join the ranks on the Parade Square at Fort Malden, near Amherstburg, Ontario. If you’re 16 years or older, learn to fire a musket! Safety comes first, so you’ll begin with instructions from a uniformed guide on operating and loading the weapons properly. Then it’ll be time to put on your own uniform, take your stand, and fire away!

Venue: Fort Malden National Historic Site

100 Laird Ave.
Amherstburg, ON Canada
