It cost 7 dollars to tour the fort. Neat to see and interesting. Would of liked to see more rooms open to the public. Have a video explaining things before you go. Beautiful view of the town and bay

We learned a lot about the history of St Croix. It is easy to get to. We just wish some of the placards were easier to read due to the need to be replaced.

Historic buildings. A glimpse of the way of life between 1733 and 1917. I paid for a complete tour which I am glad I did because she gave us a lot of history that I did not have time to read about beforehand.

This is a self guided tour using a pamphlet after watching a short video on the history of St. Croix. Many rooms were accessible to walk through or others had displays.

A cost is listed at the entrance, but at the time we were there no one was working! I don't remember how much.
