The staff and docent really enjoy their jobs! It was very evident in the way the presented information. Hands on help to (mock) fire the cannon was fun.

This is a nice little place to stop for a quick tour while in Savannah. It's not very large, so don't expect to be there more than a few hours tops. Lots of places for kids to run around and explore. They had civil war costumes to try on and stuff you could play with like old rifles. It was... More

My wife and I were the only two people there and it was freezing (iceicles on the pipes) but the young man who was the re-enactor put on a great show: knowledgeable, personable, and dramatic. I could not believe how well he ignored his own discomfort to assure our cognitive satisfaction.

We've been to a bunch of Civil War forts over the years and this was right up there. Very small gift shop, but had the essentials; pins, shot glasses, and other items. Make sure to stick around for the canon firing, was great!

We were at the fort on a very cold morning but the wind and cold didn't keep us from enjoying our visit. The reenactments were great and the guides /actors were very knowledgeable.

What a great way to spend the day for young and young at heart! History comes alive on Friday and Saturday when the young men and women recreate wars and life in the 1800's and the audience gets to participate! LOVE it when the muskets and cannons were fired! The young man in the red coat and teaching the kids... More

What a treat to pull in to Old Fort Jackson and the first thing you hear is a drum and a call to arms. Great way for young and old to learn about the history of the South. Really a treat. Highly recommend the trip, both the History Museum in Savannah and Old Fort Jackson.
