“A little run down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The fort was a little run down but still interesting to see. We did not get to see all of it as the people running it decided to close 4 hours early. Another reason for average rating.

“history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The price of admission is $3 for adult $1 for children, great price, the Fort was unfortunately self guided, they is a lot of history about the fort, which a Guided Tour should be madatory and available.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

There's little to do after coming off a cruise ship here unless you want to go across the island. They have a nice little waterfront with some local vendors. A nice peaceful respite after the madness of St. Maarten. We were the only ship in port so it was nice to just kick back and spend a few hours here and at the fort which is very interesting for it's historical perspective.

“Visit the fort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

You can see the red colored fort from the cruise ship. Entry fee is minimal and you learn about the transfer of St. Croix from Denmark to the US around World War 1.
2nd floor has an exhibit of mahogany furniture which is well worth the entry fee alone.
Nice view of the harbor from the roof.
