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!

This is such an entertaining place to visit. We all loved it - kids and adults. The staff is absolutely wonderful and really care if you are having a nice visit, everyone was so nice and friendly. The kids loved the Indian village and getting little "prizes". The fort also has a nice little gift shop. I would highly recommend this attraction, it is just a little drive from downtown. Lots of fun!!

Our family of 5 had a wonderful half day at the fort. Our guides were Laura, Kathleen and a lady whose name we didn't catch but who was so knowledgeable about the native tribe. We learnt loads and had so much fun playing all the games, building fences, earning ducados, digging for treasure, having our faces painted and dressing up in the Tucamo home. Has to be a must do for anyone interested in history.

My boys (6&8) loved the museum. Great historical overview and tons of hands on activities. They wanted to go back the next day just for replays of the games. They were also thrilled with earning ducados that they got to spend at the end. Fabulous afternoon and a highlight of our trip.
