"Family fun"
Reviewed October, 2015
Walk through time behind these walls. Lots of fun for the kids with 400 year old games, touch different displays, walk through the houses, see how the Spanish and native Americans lived.
Tip: They do give you a free bottle of water!

Great for any age! A lot of history with great sea breezes on top of the fort. Enjoyed seeing the fort again since I was a child the last time.

This is a nice way to learn about history and to have lots of hands on experiences. Adults and children will enjoy and learn at the same time. Take the tour and spend some time and really experience the area.

"Amazing!!"

Our family (kids 3 and 6) thoroughly enjoyed our visit here! The tour guide really got our children involved in the different activities. They took their time with us even though it was the end of the day and raining. We never felt rushed or out of time. Everyone greeted us with a genuine smile and friendly attitude. Such a great value and worthwhile experience that our entire family enjoyed!!!

Our 2 boys had so much fun, they didn't realize how much they learned! They were so busy competing for ducatos (which could be "spent" in the gift shop!) they didn't even complain about the heat. The guides "become" their period correct character, are knowledgeable and entertaining.

"Great value and learning experience"

There is a lot of hands on experiences mostly for the children but adults enjoyed also. The guides are dressed in period costume and are well versed in local history so we all learned new things about this very historic area. Only one part is air conditioned and about half the areas are outside so can be very warm on hot days. Free water was provided. Everyone was very friendly. It is one of the less expensive places we visited and well worth the money.
