My daughter, grandchildren (ages 2, 5, and 7), and I enjoyed his Monument. It has eye-opening history and the best Junior Ranger program I have experienced. Children are loaned a ruck sack full of items needed to solve a mystery, and enjoy items from the time period. It is very educational. They have clothes for children and adults to dress in that represent the clothing of the day (military and common), The movie is excellent and not gory, even tho' it explains the battle that took place between the British and the Spaniards. While there is very little of the fort left, the town foot print with restored building foundations and signage helps to get a feeling of what it was like in its day. The staff and volunteers are excellent and willing to spend time explaining what went on at the time.

I brought some young relatives (5 & 8) to Fort Frederica. I had not visited there for several years.

The kids really enjoyed the hands on exhibits. On the Saturday we visited, re-enactors were cooking food, shaping logs, blacksmithing--all of that fascinated the youngsters who asked tons of questions.

The film was new and a much needed improvement from the prior effort. It really told the history of the fort, it's strategic significance and it's historical importance.

A trip to the fort is well worth the time. The ride out is quite nice and you go through a lot of massive live oak trees. The fort is a quite place to walk around and see the remnants of generations past and learn about history. The visitors center has a great area for young ones to try on clothes from long ago and there is a large area outside where they can play and learn. This is a wonderful place to just relax and enjoy life...
