  • It's an important part of history. The cost is very affordable at $2 for the museum. The views and wildlife are amazing. I will visit again.
  • Small museum but there's not much else to see outside. Not bad to see but don't expect to spend more than a few minutes here.
  • This is a great place to visit and get some history about the area that is not as well known as it should be. I actually think there should be larger signage from the road and that this site should be highlighted more as you drive by. It would be even better if they could create a reproduction of a portion of the fort to show what it might have looked like at full scale. Or even create a boardwalk out to the island that the fort was actually built on.
  • This location is rich in history and culture. Castilo de San Marcos has nothing on this location when it comes to history and our nation. Known as the first Underground Railroad this Fort has an immeasurable amount of respect and amazement.
  • Never knew it was there. Great place for walks.
