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 a great stop for learning interactively. Even though it was just my wife & I, we were pleasantly surprised to learn many new facts. If you have kids this is a Must as they can actually be physically engaged in most demonstrations & will love it! Fernando was exceptionally knowledgeable in his facts & presentation. So to sum it up, people of ALL ages will enjoy this interactive museum and you will leave with new knowledge of the era (Just remember they are closed on Sundays; neat gift shop too)

Nice little Fort. The ferry was out of service still so we only got to see from the other side. Loved the trees there. Got pictures! Surroundings were nice. They have a walking trail, but did not go on.
