This was an interesting self guided tour giving a glimpse of life on St. Croix prior to the United States buying it from the Danish. This is also the site of a UNESCO World Heritage Site regarding the slavery associated with the Virgin Islands. A must see.

Been here many times, and it always seems the condition of the Fort is either good or looking really run down, It goes through long periods of neglect and then it gets paint again, so its a little hit or miss, but nevertheless and neat piece of history.

A nice 45 minutes spend at a resonable entrence fee. The place deserves som restauration, but gives a fine insight in the life in a fort.

This fort in in Fredericksted. It doesn't focus on the history as much as the Christiansted fort which is a shame. The cruise ships come in here so hopefully they will start building up the historical aspect in the area.

I find colonial history fascinating. Especially when it is presented and curated through the lens of the modern dependent of locals who would have been subject to colonization. So often we see colonial history presented from the view point of the "victors". But here we see not only a tremendously well preserved military location, but also a nice collection of... More

This fort is just as amazing as Fort Christiansvaern! Fort Frederick is on the West side of the island with beautiful views of Frederiksted Pier and Rainbow Beach. This fort also has an entrance fee that is totally worth it. Lots of information to read - not only on the fort itself, but also about the origins of the moko... More

We couldn't go inside, but we've been in it several years ago. We did walk around the old cannons and imagined what it was like to look out to sea as enemy war ships came over the horizon. Neat place to stroll around especially when no cruise ships are in port.

You get a good sense of the difference between the two ends of the island by visitng the Fort. Frederiksted ahs a very different feel than Christiansted - one that we really liked.

U.S. National Historic Landmark, built from 1752 to 1760 and right next to Cruise Pier, so that's why easy to visit. Emancipation Park and Clock Tower on front, like some souvenir stalls too. To be honest, not too much to see and not so well maintained either, but important part of history, but because of it's convenient location, worth of... More

Walk among the cannons, and ruins of the old fort. You cant go inside but imagining what it was like in full use is pretty cool.
