This is a nice National Park featuring an old historical Danish Fort. You need a national park pass to enter, but I think that it only cost arounr $15 for a lifetime card. This card is good in all national parks for life. Beautiful views...More

Ft. Christansvaen is well worth the time. Once you are inside. it is like you are back in time. Give yourself at least an hour for a thorough exploration. Explore all the nooks and cranies.

HA!! Watch your head every where you go!!! That is the motto of the Fort! The history behind the Fort and what it was used for is all explained. Sort of funny that it never shot a single shot at incoming ships. The Bay Area...More

Just a great place to visit and to find out more about Christiansted and St. Croix. Self paced tour, but others are there to help you or to answer questions. Good place to start your St. Croix vacation.

For $3 apiece, adults can visit this historical site and get a feel for the island's history. Tour is "self-guided" from a binder available when you come in.

Fort Christiansvaern is a very interesting place to visit. It is full of history. Take plenty of time to read all the plaques and articles. It's worth the time spent.

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
