“NPS site”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

This is a wonderful NPS historic site clearly demonstrating the fort's importance to several centuries of Florida history. Period costumed guides were great.

“All we needed was Jack Sparrow”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

You could picture the ships in the harbor trying to overwhelm the fort. The rooms are filled with interesting and informative pieces. You'll need a couple of hours to truly capture the fort and it's history. Attendants are helpful and well informed.

“Real life in the Nations Oldest City!”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Not only great historically, but just in general knowledge!
Cannon firings and more!

Stay out of the ammunition storage room. It is dark and haunted!

“Great site”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We loved all the friendly guides that had lots of interesting stories to share. It is certainly worth stopping in and looking around. Do stay long enough to watch the canon fire and hear some of guides tell their stories.
