During the summer months, there are some kid friendly activities going on at the Fort on Ile Sainte-Helene, you can watch reenactors go through their drills, watch them shoot off a cannon and see a replica of what the soldier's camp might have looked like complete with people dressed in period costumes performing daily activities.

Adults might find the Stewart Museum, located inside the Fort, more interesting. We went on the guided tour "Treasures of the Stewart Museum - 50 Years of Collecting" which is given once a day in French and once a day in English. Maybe it was just our guide but I would have preferred to see the collection at my own speed as he didn't add much to what was written on the exhibits.
