Just a great place to visit and to find out more about Christiansted and St. Croix. Self paced tour, but others are there to help you or to answer questions. Good place to start your St. Croix vacation.

For $3 apiece, adults can visit this historical site and get a feel for the island's history. Tour is "self-guided" from a binder available when you come in.

The Fort is interesting and it's self-guided tour connects you to the other historical sites in the immediate area. You can get a quick insight into the shipping trade in the 1700'sin St. Croix.

Nice place to visit. Very interesting with beautiful views of the harbor. Enjoyed learning the history of the island. Admission was only 3.00 and worth it. Not crowded at all.
