Because we are history buffs we thrilled to learn about the Fort Amsterdam. It was very interesting and informative.

“What?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

What is there to see? The outside of the buildings now used by the government... Since it's beside the pontoon bridge you can go through the arch leading to the interior parking lot.

“Beauiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Great fort - more for the views than the history, since the interior is now an outdoor shopping mall, but the views of the ocean were terrific - also, walk the pontoon bridge, it was way kewl!

“nice view of the island”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is an old fort that I didn't even notice on the hill. Our friends took us there to see the whole island. What a view in all directions. And the overlook of Williamsted is spectacular. There is a gift shop and dinning there but it was closed. We were there late on a Sunday afternoon.
