Amherstburg History & Arts Tour

You can practically time travel in beautiful Amherstburg. Watch centuries-old traditions re-enacted before your eyes, or stand on battlements of a defence fortification dating back to 1795.

A chief entry point into Canada for those escaping slavery, Amherstburg holds museums that are recognized globally for their deep importance to world history. You can even investigate a home used by Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, and his family in 1848.
