“Fun!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

At 11 and 2 they have the cannon demonstration, which is pretty cool. Doesn't take long to see and a short drive to Boneventure Cemetery, so you can do both in one day.

“Better Than Pulaski...”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Old Fort Jackson may be small, but that does not mean there isn't a lot to see! The staff is very well informed and do a great job of explaining the history of the fort. Make sure you get there for the cannon demonstration!

“Interesting fort”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great for groups, families, couples - anyone interested in history or forts. We were able to catch a cannon demonstration, and walk around the fort. Different areas are set up as a museum, and although they're not the most modern exhibits, they're well done. The upper area has nice views of the Savannah River. Nice little excursion outside of the city.

“Interesting Fort”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The fort is interesting and they have a few nice things to see. The amount of staff is small but they did very well explaining the history. The only downside was the bugs. There are many and you will need to bring bug spray.

“Our best historic "tour"”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Very informative presentation of history and even a cannon firing twice a day. You can take as long as you want on your own, but guide is always inside to answer all your questions. Very helpful! Best souvenir shop for Civil War materials. Don't miss this one!
