Visited on a Saturday morning, with the grandkids. Señor Blanco gave us a fantastic tour, historically this place is great, and the tour guide was very knowledgable. Well worth a return visit.

I wouldn't normally think to go here but we were on a school field trip. It was very education and interesting for children. Tour guides are dressed period costumes and very friendly.

Not crowded, tour guide lets you explore and comes back to check in so you do not feel rushed. Very educational, hands-on, and free tokens at the end which the kids loved to pick out something with at the gift shop! Super friendly staff.

Our tour guide, Tony was very thorough and explained the Indian and Spanish way of life. What a good history lesson. He spent a good part of our afternoon with us.

This was a great fort to visit. We loved that everything is hands on and there is someone to go around with you to answer questions or tell you about anything you want.

This is a gem of a place. The staff dress in period costumes and were very knowledgeable on the Spanish and Indians. Our guide Armando was funny and the kids loved him! We learned how to dip candles, play old games, dig for artifacts, a great all around good time. Plan on a couple of hours to enjoy the experience.

This was one of the places on our list to visit last year but we ran out of time. We purchased the tickets from the Red Train Station and was well worth it. My son who will be in 6th grade this year loved this place over all the ones we visited this year. He had many questions that he... More

The staff is extremely friendly, and they collectively create a positive and informative atmosphere for both the children and adults. Great for elementary age children since it is a hands on experience and they get to take home small souvenirs too.

For me and my family was such an enjoyable experience!!! We went as soon as they open, so it was practically empty so the Tour Guide had plenty of time to explain and let us stay on each station al long as we wanted. We finished it in 2 hrs. Arpox. Recommended!!!
