Fort Christian was fortunately 're-opened' after the state shut-down, on our last day on St Croix. This was an interesting visit if you are interested in military Danish History. There is a beautiful over Christiansted and over Protestant Cay.

If you like history forts with a fab view check out this Fort. Well done self guided tour which would be two hours if you read everything. Beautiful park with benches and views.

If you enjoy history, you will love touring the fort. It is self guided and cost is minimal to get in. Take your time to read info and take some amazing pictures. Right on the water at downtown Christiansted. We spent about an hour there.

A cost is listed at the entrance, but at the time we were there no one was working! I don't remember how much.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
