Great history lesson!

Our 2 children (ages 9 and 11) enjoyed filling out the kids booklet and earning a prize in the end. There's great history here and a beautiful view. It's well worth your time.

You take a boat across the river to get there. Great ride and something different to see. It is not on the top of my list, but still a must see, for the historical experience.

Of all the tours we did during our trip to St Augustine, this one was by far the most outstanding of them all. Our guide was Tearsa DelaCroz. She was extremely knowledgeable. She explained the history of each display. Then she let my granddaughter who is 11, do a hands-on each display, she got to grind the corn, weave a... More

I enjoyed seeing the fort. My little boy liked the cannons and seeing the different rooms. The view from the top is beautiful. When you buy a ticket it is good for 7 days and under 15 is free.

Wonderful spot for kids and adults. The guides and others at the fort are dressed in period outfits which further adds to the experience. The fort is well preserved and well kept up. You can easily spend 2-3 hours (or more) enjoying the many exhibits and talks.

Kathleen was very entertaining and knowledgable. It may be geared for kids, but I enjoyed it immensely. She made it fun to learn about the history.
