The building that represents the museum has been visited by millions of tourists over the years because it has retained its original appearance from the mid-19th century, including much of the furniture, and can take you back to the old village tavern life.
The attraction does not have its own parking lot, but a few minutes walk away is the parking lot of Citi of Niagara Falls, where you can leave your car. There are some other parking options as well, a little bit more far away from the museum.
The reason for the museum to be created is in order to study and preserve artifacts and historical data about the development of tourism in the area over the centuries, the War of 1812 and the notorious battle of Lundy’s Lane. Today, The Battle Ground Museum has become the guardian and face of Canadian history and identity.
The creation of the museum is inevitably associated with the name of Ruth Redmond and her history. She was a teacher and a lawyer who fought for a long time to keep the legacy of the battle intact. Subsequently, she donated the land on which the museum is located today.
History lover and patriot Мs. Redmond had to buy the land on credit to leave it as a legacy to Canadian citizens so they know more about their history.
Thanks to Ruth Redmond, this property has been preserved to remind us of the famous battle and to introduce visitors to 19th-century life. A great place for lovers of history, Battle Ground Hotel Museum will take you back in time.
