You get a good sense of the difference between the two ends of the island by visitng the Fort. Frederiksted ahs a very different feel than Christiansted - one that we really liked.

U.S. National Historic Landmark, built from 1752 to 1760 and right next to Cruise Pier, so that's why easy to visit. Emancipation Park and Clock Tower on front, like some souvenir stalls too. To be honest, not too much to see and not so well...More

Walk among the cannons, and ruins of the old fort. You cant go inside but imagining what it was like in full use is pretty cool.

It's worth the $5 entry fee to see the displays on St. Croix history. The signage in the museum is better than anywhere else on the island. It is frustrating to see the lack of upkeep (letters falling off signs, etc.), but it doesn't mar...More

This fort is well preserved, I liked the furniture exhibit in the captain's quarter, it very well maintained and designed. The remainder is good to see how construction was done in the 18th century.

It was only $10 for both of us and the views from the second floor were cool. The fort itself is interesting but unfortunately, the barely legible photocopied "map" wasn't terribly helpful. The small museum of furniture from previous periods on the second floor was...More

The fort and the descriptions of the rooms is the neatest part about the museum. The museum is small and not well thought out. The museum has a little history but it was so hot the day we visited you didn't want to stand around...More

Take the tour of the fort and get the history from a local who clearly loves the fort and gives a lively talk about the things that transpired there at Fort Frederik. So much more informative than a history book.

I was a little dissapointed in the size of the fort, but still could see and feel the history that has taken place there. The Fort is close to a public beach and the pier so definately take 30 minutes and look around the Fort.
