  • This is petty far from the city and we got here by a hired car. The fort wall itself is gone but some old buildings remain. A good half day-trip.  more »
  • Fun and interesting trip. It is easily reached by car also a net café and sanitation. We were there in the early afternoon with 33 degrees it is very hot to walk around.

  • The Fort has historically been an important place for Suriname. The open-air museum, for which you pay a small entrance, offers many military, interesting building and exhibition objects. Unfortunately seems to have in English and not very little interest in this museum guests speaking Dutch. Many exhibits are just labeled Dutch. The museum itself is very nice and has a park-like design. It loads to the stroll (if it's not too hot) a. We were there on a Sunday. On one such day, many locals use the parks around the open-air museum for recreation. It brings his meals and the entire family and enjoying life outdoors in the beautiful surroundings. We have chosen the ferry at the end of the "Anton"Drachtenweg to get the Fort Nieuw Amsterdam
