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!

"Better for older children"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 05, 2016 NEW
I took my 2 year old and 5 year old grandsons to the Fort. I found it very interesting and the guide was very knowledgable. Unfortunately, young children will not benefit from the tour as it is better for a little older child like 8 or 9. Still, they had fun learning to dip candles and play the various old time games. We only stayed 45 minutes then they had enough. I'll go back when they are a little older. We saw lots of school groups going for tours and older kids really seemed to enjoy the Fort.

I didn't go in as I prefer to photograph forts from the outside. This one was particularly striking and both my camera and I loved it. See for yourself.

The Fort is a wonderful attraction for old and young alike. Knowledgeable Staff can provide an insight into the history of the Fort and talks are given at intervals during the day.

Excellent as usual. My 3 children age 5,3 and 1 and niece had a blast as well as the 10 adults.The guide provide great educational material. It is very refreshing to have a hands on museum to bring the children too. I highly recommend attending this museum.
