Reviewed January 4, 2013

I have been here many times growing up and this is still one of the places i want to go when i vacation in St. Augustine! Though i will say it has changed a lot through the years. They used to have a ton of things in every room for you to look at and read. They haved since taken a lot of the artifacts out. I will say because i have been here so many times that i was sadden to see most of the suff i remembered from my childhood was gone. It just looked naked i guess. But i would still recommend people to come and tour this place because it still has a ton of rich history everywhere you look. Plus the prices are very reasonable! Bring your camera because you will want to take a ton of pictures!!

Great place to visit if you like history. Purchase a Senior pass for National parks to get in. Excellent to visit. A must.

I've been dragged around many a fort in the south but this one was much more fun than most with it's jail cells and cannon firings. Just a lot of fun if you like that sort of thing and very nice views as well.

Fun, small fort but worth seeing. Saw how they fired a cannon. Interesting beautiful views. Great family activity or solo.
