Even the teenagers had fun pretending to be guards and other historic workers. My 18 yr old daughter loved being the tribe leader and learning that in some cultures woman held high positions before women's lib.

I was pleasantly surprised of the trip back in time behind the fences of Fort Menedez. Wow! I didn't know all that was back there! Once you enter they put you into a roll back in time and you play it out. There's so much to learn, so much to look at, so much interaction with the history of the area, and there's a tour guide who is very knowledgeable and guides you through. We will go back again and again.

We had an awesome experince and would suggest this to others!!! My girlfriend and I spent our 5 yr anniversary here..and it was fabulous...!!! Such an amazingly beautiful city..and at night, the streets are filled with laughter and people having a great time. The walk way on George St is pebbled..and gives it that old time feel..I love it so much..and wish I could make a permenant move there.

Not much to see. The guide was entertaining and nice.
All the workers were trying to make the place a nice event. Nice gift shop.

Hi Edug8or,

We are sorry our museum did not meet up to your expectations though we are glad you enjoyed our villagers and our gift shop.

Fort Menendez is not terribly large, and though there is not a lot to see, there is plenty to do for those willing to immerse themselves in the history. We designed it as a living history museum where the guests live the history instead of watching our staff do it all. We believe experience teaches better, and creates more fond memories, than listening to lectures and reading signs.

We're glad you got in at a fair price. We are constantly adding to our experience so we hope you will give us another try. If there are any suggestions or other comments you would like to add, please feel free to contact me via the information on our page. The more thorough the review, the more information we have for improvements.

Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again!
