A learning experience at Fort Jackson.

Fort Jackson was very interesting. Had a great time. Lots of history. They even had guides dressed in era. They played the part. Good place to take a school field trip.

This place was very nice to see. History is there. I wish more people would visit this place so they can get more funding. Loved the history.

Great area to learn about history, especially when the guide gives you a "hearing" tour of what the rifle and cannon sounds like in battle

We're glad you enjoyed your visit. It sounds like you caught one of our daily cannon firings that happen at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. More

This was probably one of my favorite experiences while in Savannah. I took my Girl Scout troop and they were able to interact with the soldiers, learn Morris Code, do a mock cannon firing and explore the old fort. I highly recommend you take your Girl Scout troop to this fort.

Tickets: We went to three Coastal Heritage Society sites with a discounted combination admission ticket. We could choose three sites for three days (unlimited entries) with this pass and it was considerably cheaper option for families than single tickets for each site. I believe these tickets are available at any of those Heritage Society sites (call ahead to verify if... More

Well-preserved and historic. I went during a special event, so they fired the canon for us, and it was impressive!

A really cool old historic fort! There are still holes in the fort walls caused from cannonballs hitting them during the wars.

I have to be honest if you are a history buff or into fort most likely you will like this place. I guess I was spoiled because one of the coolest Forts I have been to was down in San Juan Puerto Rico and it spoiled me because I expected more when I visited Fort Jackson. I think it's important...

We booked a trip to Old Fort Jackson through a tour company. We almost cancelled it because we felt we had too much packed into a day and this activity seemed the least fun on paper. I'm so glad we didn't cancel! This was the highlight of our trip! At Old Fort Jackson, we joined the militia. We walked with... More

sometime it is hard for children in a big city to find things to do, but Savannah has two forts to visit. This one that they would love and the one out at Tybee Island; Fort Pulaski which is also a nice drive.
