We walked around the fort and took some great photos . There are lots of vendors selling trinkets and souvenirs in this area.

We stopped at here as part of a tour. We had about 30 minutes to walk the Queen's Staircase, visit the straw market, and tour the fort, if we wanted. It doesn't sound like much time, but we managed well. We paid $3 each to...More

$3-4 admission. Worth it for the small tour that it is. The guide was very friendly and informative. Can combine your visit with a walk over to the queens staircase, as it is about 100 meters away. Great view.

Quiet small fort, and you have to pay to get in. Close to Queens Staircase if you wanna do both. Hot in a summers day as everything else I guess...) Good view of the harbour cruise ships.

In doing my research before arriving at Nassau on our cruise ship, this appeared to be a great option for my little boys who love exploring and getting into everything. However, when we arrived, this was more of a bust than a hit. The fort...More

Yes, there is a fee to get in. I recommend bringing small bills and small coins. They will give you change back but I their currency.
