I've been to Ft Menendez twice now and have had a great time there twice. You do need a good tour guide as it makes all the difference in your trip. The fort is meant to be interactive and something to spend your time playing old games, grinding corn, trying on equipment, dipping candles and learning about history. If you choose to participate and not just observe then you get more out of the experience. My experience was fantastic on the first trip because the guide (a nice young man) truly enjoyed what he was doing and tried to get everyone involved in every aspect of the tour. On the second trip with friends the female guide started rushing through everything. Thank G-d she was replaced by another guide and we started the entire experience over. This time our friends got to experience more of everything they had. The trip is what you make of it so push yourself to interact, try things, crush shells and corn, dig out a canoe with sea shells, take pictures on a throne and make sure you get one at the helm of the ship.
