Closed. Can see from the street and close to the river front area. Looks neat from the outside but we were really bummed when we got there to find it still closed.

I hope to visit this site one day but upon this trip to Nashville it was closed for renovations. I was dissapointed but we did stumble upon a Mardi Gras Festival at Riverfront Park upon trying to get to the fort.

We stumbled upon this replica while walking around the river front - none of the buildings were open but it was still interesting to walk through. Took a total of 5 minutes but its a nice distraction from 2nd Ave. It is open 24/7.

We were on a walking tour of Nashville and happened into Fort Nashborough. It's history is fascinating - Nashville had a huge role in the Civil War.

We have lived in the Middle Tennessee area a long time & had never been. It was very interesting. Enjoy seeing historical sites. Would recommend to people interested in that kind of experience.

This historic site in Nashville is fairly boring and does not have alot to see. There are also alot of homeless people laying about in the area.

This is a nice stop while strolling around downtown. Nice view of the TItan's stadium and just compact enough to get through it all in 1/2 hour before checking out the rest of the riverfront.

Free attraction in downtown area. small scale model of original Fort Nashborough. Right on the riverbank so nice view. Gives idea of how original fort was laid out but it is only buildings, you can't go inside them & see how the men there might have lived at the time. But still worth checking out while you are down by... More

This was a quick stop while walking on the riverfront on our way to 'honky tonk' row. It was very interesting to see the fort, the construction of the buildings, and the small size of the overall structure. Would be great to show children our history!! But, it is a small place and I would not make this my destination.... More
