Cool little place just off the pier. Good exploring and snorkeling. A little rocky near the shore but cool.

The place needs a little love but it is a very interesting site. A low admission fee you get to see beautiful 18th Century handmade mahogany furniture and then you wander around the fortress on your own. Don't miss the beach next to the fortress!

We spent about an hour walking around this fort. It was $5 per adult to get in. Plenty to look at and learn. Kids enjoyed it as well.

This fort in in Fredericksted. It doesn't focus on the history as much as the Christiansted fort which is a shame. The cruise ships come in here so hopefully they will start building up the historical aspect in the area.

I find colonial history fascinating. Especially when it is presented and curated through the lens of the modern dependent of locals who would have been subject to colonization. So often we see colonial history presented from the view point of the "victors". But here we...More
