It was a self guided tour with a booklet that told all kinds of interesting facts about each area of the fort. The top offered stunning views of the water and boats and boardwalk.
As of Feb. 2014, site was under some renovations but still very interesting for the history! Good views from the walls out over the surrounding harbors.
We've been to quite a few Spanish built forts but never one Danish and we were glad we stopped in. The information provided was great and we found it to be quite interesting. It's an easy fort to get around in and they've done a nice job with the exhibits.
Get to walk around the for and take plenty of photos with a great view of the ocean. Great vantage point. Watch the sea planes take off and land. Plenty to see in the fort as you read the historical significance.

It was great to get to know more of the story of Saint Croix and to find out that the history extends realistically back to Christopher Columbus was really cool.
We stopped at the fort and explored a bit since it was free and convenient to park in the lot for the boardwalk during the day. With kids, I recommend Christiansted in the morning when it is less busy. No one was around so we just went in. Not worth planning around with so many other things to do in... More
A US National Park, the Fort is very nice, and is mostly restored. Easily accessible to walk all around. Well worth the three dollar admission. There is a map guided self tour that is given to you as you enter. You could spend as little as an hour and or up to several hours, depending on how long you want... More
