Fort Frederik, Frederiksted

2.1
#5 of 19 in Museums in U.S. Virgin Islands
Witness a vital mid-18th century defense at Fort Frederik. The bright red fort was built in 1752 to ward off frequent pirate attacks. Today visitors can step inside to learn about St. Croix's local history and find art, photos, and information about the fort. Head to the courtyard, which features cannons facing the water, and take in views over the Caribbean Sea. You can plan St. Croix trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Beautiful but not active, need to be a more alive
  • A great place to view the sunset.
  • Gave a couple of workshops here. Staff is great. No AC but it's a fort from 1670! Beautiful scenery. Some damage from hurricanes in 2017.
  • Absolutely worth going to see if you rented a car and are visiting the island. A little rougher around the edges than the other fort but in a state of arrested decay. Plenty of parking with a bit of a walk.
  • Nice history. Beautiful views. Employees were nice and helpful. Clean facilities. Worth the stop.
