This old fort is very close to Savannah on the way to Tybee Island. It is well preserved. The staff / re-enactors are knowledgeable. There are cannon firings twice daily.

The Fort is well maintained and offers excellent live history lessons and cannon firing--using volunteers visiting the Fort. There are also a number of displays to view as you walk through the Fort. A fun experience that only take 1-2 hours.

We really enjoyed learning about how Fort Jackson played a part in Savannah's history from Mr. McDonough, our presenter. He made our trip memorable!

We had a wonderful time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to see 2 cannons fired on our tour. The guide kept it fun and interesting using volunteers, and the audience. Excellent for all ages. I definitely recommend when visiting Savannah.

This fort is well-maintained and is interesting. If, however, you're expecting a big fort with a lot to do and see, you might be disappointed. It's rather small with not much to do, but I still enjoyed learning about the history of Old Fort Jackson....More

Cannon firing presentations include a history of the site and its significance. When kids visit, we try to make our programming as interactive as possible, including mock drill and marching.
